i think it would look better if you but the branching rock in or behind the other rock. i personally dont like seeing the "trunk".

Was the rock you put in there live or dry?
In life - go big or go home
In a reef tank - go slow and do research or your tank will crash and you'll loose everything.

ah well I guess that works then. Cool. Nice drain though! Are you not worried about snails crawling in and reducing flow, causing a flood?
