Stacking rock...

I hear against the built in overflow is a good place to stack rock... Is it a bad idea to stack rock against the back glass? Seems like it would be...

It's fine as long as you make it as stable as possible. It's not that important since viewing is not a problem. More important is that your animals can't dig under the rock and cause a landslide.

Yeah its a god idea. Something i did as well. Although you want to stack it up against the back glass, just make sure you have plenty of hiding spaces all along the rockwall, and make it so the fish can go in and out as they please. Don't just try and stack rocks flat against the wall because that calls for less space for fish.. AND less stability since there is not many rocks at the bottom, holding the top rocks up.

Also remember "water flow". Good water circulation is a must.

if I didn't glue my rocks, should I take them out now and glue them?
is there any other way to secure the rocks w/o glue?
