I like the way the set up looks now, but with the fish getting larger I feel like I am taking away a lot of space especially since they are open water swimmers. I do have a lot of non flat rocks that I could put in. I know the set up is personal preference but what are everyones thoughts? I feel I am taking away from the size of the 180 by having the entire back of the tank filled 3/4 high with rocks. Here are some pics. There is also a video with a link in my Signature.

Looks great!
I agree, perhaps open a space in the middle and stacks the rocks on the sides. It will also give you some hieght which will add more depth.

Looks better for cleaning, do you have a power head in behind the rock to push the waste along to an intake? Good rockwork, I'm having problems with my rockwork. To many round ones they don't stack or stay stable and when I say round I mean like a bowling ball.

Thank's for the latest compliments. Cleaning is a lot easier now. And juststayinthecave no I do not have a power head set up. I am anal with my weekly cleanings and I don't really have a big problem with fish waste collecting in dead spots.
