About 3/4 of the height of my rock is touching the back glass. It has too. I have around 160 pounds (all live, no base rock, didn't know about base rock when I set it up) in a 100 Gallon. I wouldn't have any room in front if it didn't. LOL! There is plenty of space inside the "rock pile". I have 3 mini jets inside the rocks. For current "outside" the pile I have a Hagan 802 and a 402 in the tank. I also have a 5' homemade spraybar drilled every inch at the top/back of the tank. The direction of the water flow is adjustable by twisting it. It's driven by a 1500+gph (restricted by ball valve to about 900-1000gph) pump in my sump.

I have mine stacked so that some of it touches the back glass but not everywhere. A good thing to keep in mind is to have a good size area for a cryptic zone. This will provide a good environment for anthropods and copepods to breed.

I also don't clean the back or the sides, this is because I want it to be coated in Coraline Algae.

It is also a good trick to use plastic electrical quick ties to brace rocks together. Just work with exsisting holes to tie them together or you can drill a hole.

Good Topic.
