    ah, yes, but i dont have enough room depth wise to get something like that. I wanted to do something like that, actually 2 l shaped islands, but there wasnt enough room depth wise in the tank. So a wall structure is what came out of it.

    Karma for trying to get it right! Better than rearranging after the fact, or rearranging due to a rock slide(me). You've got nice looking rock to start with, and that helps. Waiting on the next installment of pics....

    well guys here is the pics. Its modeled sort of after the picture coral reefer posted up there. I really liked that layout, and did the best with what I had. Its the 2 island theme, I like it abit better then the first. Ill order more rock when the money allows and build them out further towards the glass in tiers if you will.

    You probably also notice that the returns are now in the center instead of on the outside like before. I used the returns that come in the over flows as my emergency overflows for the herbie system. So I plumbed these up the center back of the tank and they are working wonderfully. Ive also got a powerhead stuck behind that far left island, with a piece of flat rock on top of it as a shelf. Trying to make sure ive got plenty of places for corals/frags/etc. Anyhow, the 2 white 90's are kind of ugly right now, but hopefully i can get coraline to grow on them and they will then blend right in.
