Tank looks great! That is not too much LR from what I have read you should have 1 to 1.5 lbs per gallon.

I would try to find a flat piece of rock or some small rocks and put it in front of your wall (on the sand) to make a nest for corals.

If you like how many lbs of LR you have just keep it. In my 24 aquapod nano I think I have arounf 1 lb per gallon but in my 180 I'll probably have less than 50 lb in it.

That's nice. What is a flame hawkfish? I only heard of a flame angel fish. Is that the same thing

It is my second favorite fish first being brown banded bamboo shark. No it is not the same thing hawkfish are coral safe unlike some angels They don't have a swim blater so the scoot around. here is a poor picture of one; to do them justice you will have to seem them in stores.

Here is what slatwaterfish says about flame hawkfish:

The Flame Hawkfish, a.k.a. Scarlet Hawkfish, is thought of as one of the coolest fish among all fish kept in aquariums. They have a beautiful red body with a dark band along their dorsal line and dark markings around their large eyes. The Flame Hawk has a tremendous amount of personality. Its large eyes love to watch everything that goes on both inside and outside the aquarium. These fish have large pectoral fins which they use to perch on rockwork and substrate. They will hop from spot to spot in full view waiting to be fed.

I like the tank! I think if you are happy with how the rockwork looks you should be fine. I would agree with what some others said a couple of smaller pieces up front if you decide to add some corals might work out nicely.
