Rock placement in tank

When setting up a reef tank when you place your rock in the tank do you want the rock up against the back of the tank or space back there and if so how much

Read read and read some more. You are all not created equal and will be treated as such.

A lot of people stack it up against the back, just remember to leave openings in the aquascape for fish to swim through, and to allow plenty of water flow through the rocks to avoid dead spots.

Wanna calculate the cost of that new reef tank?? Take your worst nightmare, double it, and you're halfway there.
