I like the rock structure. If you're going to adventure into the SPS world, you should consider starting with a Montipora. Generally they are a bit easier and can survive in less light. I'd suggest that you may not have enough light to keep acros yet.

How long has it been running? How big?

All scapes start as a conglomeration of rocks, its when you add the corals that the whole structure brings on an organic form. The form you used is a great start and will only get better as the corals grow out. The caves are beneficial for our finned friends as well and I'm sure they appreciate it.

Your scape is 10x better than my scape on my first tank easily. [emoji106]
