Live rock help

I see a lot of people using egg crate to help disburse the weight of the rock in their tanks. I have a 55 galling tank with 55lbs of rock in it on a aragonite base. I'm worried that I should have used egg crate. I do not plan on adding anymore rock and the bottom of the tank has tempered glass. Also I have some rocks touching the back glass, should I rearrange all the rocks so that nothing is touching the back glass?

Any help is greatly appreciated. I just don't want to crack the tank and have 50 gallons of water all over my tank.

You are fine. Nothing will happen. You can lean them against the back glass if you like.

I have about 225lbs of LR in my 125. It's all against of the back of the glass, too. In total I have 1,000lbs of water, 225lbs of LR, 150lbs of sand- all resting on the glass. Not worried.
