I'll certainly take some pics of packaging and the rock. My tank is a rr with dual overflows and return lines allready ran. I dont see a real current issue here. I allready have 100 pounds in in now and it flows great.

I tend to lock'm in place like a puzzle, try to push'm a bit, and when they don't fall with a small, but decent amount of force, I figure they're OK and no creature in there is stronger than what I just did and I feel OK.
True..but when you have rocks that weigh 25lbs each like I do (or more) you want to be absolutely certain that they wont go anywhere.

And I dont suggest glueing all the joints..just the ones that might need a little extra support. Epoxy wont support weight, but it will keep it from shifting so that the base rock can support the weight.

All I have to say is good luck putting 300 pounds in a 150 gallon without touching the back glass 8O . I think it is just fine to have some resting on the glass. just make sure to have enough water flow back there.

It touched on the back but just up on the top. Most of the pieces were real big. I'll post pics later tonight.
