It looks great! Depending on what you plan to put in there, you may want to consider adding some more live rock and building it a bit taller in areas.
Also, just so you are aware.. the bottom photo is not actually live rock, but rather a coral skeleton. If you'd like to know what type of coral it was at one time let me know and I'll have my hubby take a peek. He knows almost all of them off the top of his head just on sight. I am recognizing it but the name is not coming to me at the moment.

Congrats on the new tank!

How deep is it? It looks about six inches, which is fine.
