Regarding my lighting, I am going with 3x250w HQI... but my question is, I have 2 center braces for my tank, one on each side of the overflow... are they going to interfere with growing SPS underneath them?

Are there any tricks I should consider? Or maybe just keep lower light demanding SPS directly under the braces?

G, I've always used two different approaches to that same problem. But they both involve the rocks.

Either make two peaks right under the braces, or make two valleys right under the braces.

The way my tank is setup right now, I have one peak under one brace, and then no rock at all under the other brace.

I get your point spanky... either have a peak so that the corals are closer to the lighting obscured by the brace, or have a vally where there are no corals so the lighting dont matter... is that correct?
