Hi everyone!

As I'm very new to marine tanks, I was wondering if my tanks layout and coral arrangments are alright?
Would there be any tips on improving the tank?
I was thinking of getting some more love rock to put near the smaller rock, is this ok to do?
What other corals would you recommend for this tank?
I have an Aqua One Mini Reef 120 tank,
Currently have all the base equipment that comes with the tank. Getting my water parameters tested regularly at the local fish store and all have been great.
Thanks in advance!
I'll post some current pictures of my tank.

Looks good. Only suggestion I have is moving the cataphyllia or torch. They look awful close together and will go to war with each over, and both will suffer and one will die. The cat would probably do well at the front right corner, plenty space for it to open and grow

Nice tank, be careful as the fox face fish tend to have a form of venom in their dorsal fin. 
Having just started the hobby, did you fully cycle the tank?  How long has it been set up?

I only ask as I wouldn’t want to see things go wrong :)

The foxface will be fine for a while, but you're aware they get quite large (9 inches or more), and need a much larger tank in the long run?

Update !
Today we bought the AR150 keloray light, and another piece of live rock, oh and a clam!
Unfortunately the coral beauty had to go as he started eating corals and bullying Tony (hawkfish)!
Other than that I'm pretty happy with the tank, what do you guys think?
