    It is a dry heat, yeah right !
    Looks like a good scape, like the bridges. How old is your tank? What type of lighting?

    I would move the rock away from the glass, it limits flow. Other than that it looks like a decent layout for coral to grow in.

    ^ This was my only thought but I really like the way it looks how it is.

    Welcome to 3reef. Tank looks great. I have my rocks on the back glass too and I have no issues, I think the shelf bridges are cool.

    Welcome Larry. My 2 cents is that three rock next to glass will make patches on the glass hard to clean. Looks good.

    Looks great! The only thing I would do is add another rock in front of the wall to break it up a little bit. Maybe in the middle or slightly off to the right. I wouldn't change anything else though.

    Also what is with that cord right across the middle of the tank. Maybe do something about that.

    Love the rich purple you got going, looks great with your lighting. The shelves you have are nice too! +1 on moving the cord and giving room around the glass. :2thumbsup:

    love the color of your rock as well and especially like the bridges you have.
