some areas seem to have more than 1" due to current and placing of rocks? so figured I would remove a bit of sand to keep it below the 1" line.

Also added 25 lbs more of cured live rock tonight !!! pictures to follow soon, not easy trying to place them all

I would suggest moving the rock on the far right side, touching the glass. You will find it very frustrating when you begin to scrape algae from the glass, especially coraline algae.

Tank is looking nice!

What do you use to stack your rock? I've seen aquarium safe putty and also pins.

Actually using nothing, I am stacking them like a puzzle, until they are solid.
