    So I have been playing with options for my rock. I'm torn between using the branch. It takes up a lot of space. I have a few photos of the different styles. Lastly a single stack with a larger sand bed. that way I can put some other corals out there that need to be away from other things.

    I like number 3 also, but I think you should put one medium rock to the right side floor so you could have a nice little island of zoas.

    #2 with the modification of flipping the islands. More viewing with the smaller on the right. Would provide better flow as well.

    Since it's a peninsula, I like #3. #2 is great but you cannot see the whole picture from the right glass point of view.

    I like the structure in number 2 - right side if it was towards the overflow/ back.
    And put that tonga branch in front.

    Either way you decide, you have nice rocks to play with.
