Nothing wrong with leaning against he back glass. I think you'll find your overall rockscape just fine and even more stable with it stacked and leaning on the back glass. Try using it yet staying away from the sides. After a while and a bunch of coraline growth, you likely wanna clean the sides. I always left room for a magnet cleaner and/or my hand with a scraper to fit there.

New look

so i didnt like the last stacking it was to similar to others tanks and i wanted different so check it out..also i had about 80 lbs of rock in the tanks which only allowed about uhh 25 30 gallons of water..ridiculous....so here is where we stand three sep islands with different things going on...few pieces touching the back..mostly island....my aquaclear 70 has been turned into a fuge...I'm running a prism skimmer i got free and i upgraded to a Rena XP3 for 75 bucks...so i added some generic korelias...looks good huh...they pump about `1300 a hour and were only 35 bucks on ebay..really work....so my corals are almost done being pissed so maybe they'll be out tomorrow..

The is my FTS....subtracted about 30 lbs...lol..they were super bulky..but stashing them may upgrade my 125 to a reef????but love my cichilids
