Move the center isolated island up or out of the tank. Build up the left side structure so that the right side goes up and to the right. Just an idea. I take mine apart and piece them back together like a kid with legos.

How far below the waterline would you take it?

Thanks! It was a blast to put together, but finishing it out is turning out to be a pain in the A!

Kinda hard to tell. Rockwork looks to end at about the halfway of the waterline height? No more than 1/4 of the way down would be the highest I would go so corals can expand. What types of corals will you have? If SPS dominant you may want to give corals more room to grow upwards. At the end of the day when this is finally packed with corals, no one will know exactly where rock ends and coral begins anyways.

Yep, for the most part, its right at the midway point. My initial thought was to stop there since I planned on having a lot of SPS and was afraid to go any higher since the lights would cook the LPS it it was higher.

After looking at it, I think there is some room to raise it in the middle section. I'll play around with that tonight and see what I can come up with. Thanks for your feedback!

OK, I think I'm finally settled on the final version. Made some changes and raise some of it up a bit. Take a look and give me your thoughts on this version.
