Yeah to each his own. There isn't a wrong way aquascape just don't put rocks to close to your lights. And also think of what kind of fish you will have some fish need more hiding spots

And if you want to clean behind those rocks dont stack them against the glass. I have to redo my rock cause I used the back of the tank to support my rocks. This is a great opportunity to get the tank the way you want it before throwing living stuff in there
