Mine run directly down the center of my tank. It gives fish room to swim and in some cases chase and hide.

Here's mine before I started to put the corals in. I wanted mine on the back wall so the fish are forced to swim in front. I like the avalanche effect from 1 corner. It's not to everyones liking, but it's what the wife and I like.

Here's my latest work. Made out of 4 pieces at 15.5 lbs dry. It'll be going in my tank probably next week, got it curing right now.

I kinda like the look of it running against the back wall but giving them a little back their but also taking up the length of the tank. Anyone set up like that a little bit or similar in any way?

I think so. Here is mine, most of the rock is against the back wall, runs the length of the tank and the caves come out more either side

The beauty of home aquariums is that you can make it look how ever you want. I have mine resting on the back glass and still made arches and tunnels for them to swim and hide. The do however, like to swim out front more often.
