Default Starting new nano tank...general advices?

Hello everyone,
I'm finally in the last steps of setting up my first reef tank, Zeovit way!

SPECS in general

It is an 80L "cube" tank, whit a custom made AIO compartment. Light will be a fluorescent/multichannel led hybrid.
Planning to gradually get a small mixed reef population including:
2 SPS (at least one plating)
2 LPS (definetely one kind of Euphylia)
2 Softy (zoas and GSP)
2 Clownfishes

First advice: Aquascaping

What do you guys would use of the following three?
In particular, i can't really figure out if those layouts would have enough surface for corals. Should i leave shadowed areas? Maybe it would be better to break the two really big rocks in more pieces?

Thanks

Difficult to say as it depends to the personal taste but basically I would not build the rockwork that high and not so close to the side walls. Some reef plates which are not directly placed on the sand to allow water movement between the rocks and the sand is what I would use.

mmmh...maybe i'll remove some rocks to leave more room. Currently i've got 9 kg...I've also tried to leave some space from the back wall. Should i lean more toward it?
Tank will be bare bottom BTW.

Ample water flows in between,
left and right glass reserved space (clean magnet brush) Everyone tastes different According to their own favorite,
scenes will grow differently with time.
Adequate flow and maintenance of water flow is more important.

Keep in mind that corals are growing and do need a lot of space. In the beginning that might look funny to have so much space for the corals but this will usually change quick if they do grow up. But as mention before it is really a question of your personal taste.

You are welcome, or you can get some inspiration from watching other people's tanks. Mainly flat abutments, staggered from each other, coral growing space, maintaining good water flow. "Sculpture" can be done according to what you like. You can also DIY or buy a landscaping stone. Looking forward to the beautiful tank in the future to share with us.
