Question Forcing fish to swim out front

Currently, I have my rocks placed in the middle of the tank and my fish likes swimming at the back of the tank where I can't see them. If I shove my rocks touching the back glass, do you think the fish will swim at the front now because they don't have room at the back?

I wouldn't think you'd want to force them out in the open, but from what I've read on here you can put your rocks against the back glass. I've actually thought about doing the same thing in my tank, but you want to make sure the fish have somewhere to hide and feel secure.

It took my kole tang about 3 days to "learn" that me and my family aren't out to harm him, but when someone new comes over he goes into hiding for a while. It'd probably stress him out a bit if I didn't provide any hideouts for him.
