Live Rock Placement!!Help!!
 
I really donít know if this is a good placement of my live rock, I need some opinion, or criticisms. As you can tell either I have too much rock, or just a bad design. Any criticism would be helpful.

My only advice is to make sure those rocks are secured in place. If the fish you get are avid burrowers, then you have a problem. Most species of wrasses, blennies, jawfish and gobies in particular are fond of burrowing under the rocks. Some large fish may even accidentally topple the whole structure causing terrible disasters including crashing of rocks on the glass.

hi
how about a pile of rock either side,with a nice area in the middle. :)

That loose placement would be great for flow to get around it but it looks unstable.
