    I know what you mean it is a kinda weird design but having tried nearly every other layout before I was very sure about what i wanted. I knew I wanted two towers and a platform, almost a frag rack if you will.
    If I had the option of say a 6ft'er I would probably have gone for one main island with a slightly smaller out crop and no join but with the my 3ft'er my options were limited and with a larger and smaller island I would have been forced back to the option of two rock piles.
    The tank was always set up with a mind to keep sps but as this is my first attempt at keeping sps I hope I've reflected this with my aquascaping?

    cheers,

    Spanky.
