    That is an amazing tank. It looks flawless and reminds me of the deep sea. The coral and the fish look beautiful.

    I have 200 lbs. I end up not using about 10 pieces each time. (which puts me over the 1lb/gallon thing... but this is reef saver rock which is heavier than typical reef rock).

    Looking good! I suppose the more numerous open spaces will help avoid "dead spots" in the water flow. Are you gonna get one of those random wave makers? I love gadgets and those seem so cool (though way outta my price range)!

    Not in the plans... But just a few current makers in there seem to interact in such a way that creates random currents, I'm sure I'll have a couple of those as corals need/want high flow like that.

    Tip: Your structure should be 100% free standing. Don't stack it against the back wall of the tank if you can avoid it. It's better for flow and managing aggression of the fish if there's unimpeded access through and around the structure. Stacking the rock against the back glass practically guarantees you'll have dead spots where detritus will settle in places inconvenient/impossible to reach to remove it.
    Judge not lest ye be judged creates a cesspool. Judge others and prepare to be judged by them.
    Just know when to keep the verdict to yourself.

    Oh you mean how many pieces? Well, the small structure on the right is 9 or 10 pieces. So use that to take a guess on the left structure. :-)
