Reef Rock stacking help Please..

I've recently tried to stack the rocks in my 92 gallon reef while trying to avoid making it look like a pile of rocks. Well... it looks like a pile of rocks to me.

Can someone provide some help or advice to make my reef look more natural? I have about 3 large (rather flat) type rocks and several odd shaped rock pieces (8 or so).

Tried loading a pic but I can't get the Windows Picture and Fax viewer to resize the pic under the limit!

I built a pvc frame. Drilled the frame and rock with holes and strap tied everything together

You can get some stick epoxy and use that to hold your rocks together. Take a few out that you'd like to design with. Lay them on a towel and only dry off the spots you want to epoxy. Get a generous portion of epoxy putty and put it on rock number one. After it looks like it'll stick to the first rock, place the second rock on the first and hold for a minute or two. It doesn't take long for the putty to set, so you should be able to put it back in your tank right away. Support both rocks when you pick them up (depending on how heavy they are) and your set. Good luck and try to get some pics up.
I fight fire because the little voices in my head tell me to.

Sorry kids, daddy spent your college fund. But hey, at least the tank looks cool!
