My "minimalist scape" is out of whack now

I like what you are doing there. Looking good.

I don't have a sense of proportion, but be conscious of stack height relative to waterline. Top of the stack should be below 2/3rds of the waterline. Some say even lower. Depends on a few things.
a) what corals will be in the top sections. Staghorns need some space to climb. Table acros not so much.
b) Viewing angle. If you are looking "up" at the tank versus down. Food for thought.

I made this mistake more than once.

Thanks for the input. I will measure again before adding to the tank. If its too tall I can remove some of the bottom pieces

Hi everyone.

Now my tank is like 5 weeks old, Im almost there when it comes to the fish stock, but there is a loooong way until I can start to fill it up whit high end Acros.... Right now Im "sitting on my hands" and waiting for the system to mature.

As you can see the algae show is still on, got some brown, some green and some cyano, but its going in the right direction.

Here are some pics of how it looks today. 5 weeks in.
