    Any ideas? Wanted like two pinnacles, one on the left, open centre, one on the right.

    Think you're going to need a couple of carefully selected rocks to be able to build up your pinnacles, otherwise you could drill your rocks and use cable ties to tie them together.

    Your SPS corals will also add a lot of structure....if you will be adding SPS corals....

    Other wise you could look at placing some of your longer Live rock verticaly and then joining it in some manner....

    Remeber when making pinnacles you have to ,ake place for coral attachment as well. Sticking corlas to a vertical surface is nearly impossible so i suggest you make ample ledges or (as NeilH suggests) drill holes into the rock that you can slide the corals into.

    just remember that some corals come on pieces of LR so that might change ur ideas along the way;)

    i buy corals like that, put it in my oither setup, once the coral seems to be doing well i frag it onto and stick to my tanks rocks, that way scaping isnt messed up. you could also sell the lefover piece as a frag, or frag it even more nd sell as frags.

    just my 2c
