i really like your rock work, but im going to suggest to move that one large ball shaped rock on the upper left. ofcourse you dont have to, as its your tank but for one it doesnt look very natural ( but the rest of the rock looks outstanding! ) more importantly it doesnt look very stable and i would hate to see it tumble. it also looks like without it you would have a flatter surface for coral placement. maybe put it in the back? really though i like your rock work

do you just have that 1 powerhead? you may have to add another as you'll want little to no dead spots in the tank. a good placement for having 2 powerheads is one on either side of the tank. hope that helps some and it looks like your off to a fantastic start. remember patience is key!

Thanks for the comments. I really like the rock work so I'm leaving it that way for now.I drilled the rock and ran a rod through it to keep it together, so there should be no problem with it falling. As for the second power head, yes I will get a second one here soon.

good deal, i wasnt aware you put a rod through it. for future rods a plastic hanger cut into strips works well, and cost just about nothing.
