shallow tank SPS aquascape

My tank is 20" high but with the bottom and overflow how it is actually only 16" when operational.

I read that NOT putting more rock than half the height of the tank (technically water level) is the way to go it gives the SPS some room to grow.

for example, I can stand up a large show size rock at 12" that looks great, or I can lay it flat down and keep it 8" and it is not very interesting at all. That with the 12" high rock leaves about 4" of space of SPS at the highest area.

At this point should I just put the rock very low and flat and just put the acros from front to back. As the acros grow to 10" am I not even going to care about the rock work anymore?

If your tank is shallow can you show some pictures of the rockwork.
