Key:
Red = Highest rock
Dark Blue = middle height of rock
Light blue = rock from 0-4 inches high

This was made really fast in Paint and will most likely be altered a little bit but this is just a visual overview of what I planned on. Any input, comments, or advice would be appreciated!

The rock thats in there now (aside from like 3 or 4 of them) were just thrown in there to try and get the water to clear. I will be at my girlfriends house (where the tank is) after work tonight so I will post some of them later just so you can see it so far

Heres a picture similar to the two island setup that I had planned. I intend to alter the placement of each of them but the principle is the same I guess. Just to give you all a visual:

Haha! going back and looking at your 65g tank I can see that! I realize it wont turn out the exact same, and dont necessarily want it to, but if it looks good like yours id be happy with it haha

I figure both of the islands will definitely end up wider than in the sketch, but thats ok because it will give me more places to put corals

Thumbs up

A few new pics. The water has cleared and im doing rock work little by little. Moving the rocks around makes the tank cloud up again so its hard to do a lot of rock work at once. The rocks on the back right are where I want them I think, the ones on the left havent been placed yet.

Going to the LFS today to grab some little things like a magnet cleaner and maybe a water heater.
