Live rock Setup

Hello all, i got this question in my head for a long time, so i'm going bring it her and hear what you guys think. Currently i got my rock in the center of the tank, and i was thinking of moving them to the back so i can make like a reef wall and more caves. is there any benefit from it ? or is the same? important factor i don't have power head yet i'm going to buy one in a couple of weeks.
Setup info:
- 20g tank
- Marineland 200 HOB filter ( should i leave the long intake tube on or short?)
- Clownfish and a dottyback
- 1 turbo snail and 4 hermit crab
- also my sand bed inst deep should i get more sand ?

thanks guys

You want enough room between rocks so that you dont get buildups of fish poop and other nasty stuff. Also make sure you can get a magfloat between the rock and the glass.

I';ve tried so many different ways of stacking rock, right now my favorite is center of the tank so water flows between the rocks and the fish have the front and back to swim and sleep in.

180g Reef - 60g Rimless Reef -90G FOWLR- 125g Malawi Cichlids- 40b REEF- 34g Fresh Planted-working on- 20L FOWLR- working on
I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.
