ok i will go have a look for it. some of my CC is behind my LR would it be a bad idea to just leave it where it is since it isnt accesssible to the fish and to just replace the CC in the front of the tank which is in the open? would the mean the that fish could sift around and i wouldnt have to worry about them disrupting the rock causing a rock slide?

You can do that, the only issue I see is cleaning the CC in the back, to get the nasties out of it.

Other than crabs or shrimp, but they will only get what they can reach. Can you get air line tube back there and siphon up as much as you can?
