Something to think over. Be careful of creating shaded areas under the wood. Very difficult to fill/plant and they tend to accumulate detritus as you can't clean underneath and flow is also likely to be less. I have regretted doing this before.

Those are not final lights, so won't be as shaded. And may have some cholla wood stacked there for shrimp hideout, but yea that area is intended for shrimp to take a break, current tank has a piece of driftwood where they just all scurry under when lights suddenly turns on.
