Don't build a solid wall...leave plenty of nooks n crannies to provide shelter n hiding spots...also may want to make sure your LR is wiggled in the sand pretty good to start a good foundation....especially if u have or plan on getting any kind of a sand sifter.

This is what I did. My rock is more toward the front of my tank, leaving the back more open for swim area. I figure this will give my fish a nice way of getting out of the spot light and allow them to not be so stressed. I also have some small caves in-between.

I'd definitely build some type of structure instead of have them in 3 separate places
