I could do that with the rocks I have. You want swimming spaces between or a more solid piece like in the picture?

Oh sweet. I got all mine from rivers/creeks in TN while on vacation over a few years. And a bunch from my grandpas old tanks.

You should have no problems finding rocks. Just get some nice longer flat rocks to stack. The tricky part is finding rocks for support that are more flat on the top and bottom so it's stable.

It's a challenge but a fun one.

All mine are supported by other rocks. None of mine rest on glass other than the one side rock in the 50g but there is nothing stacked on it.

Get rocks that are somewhat taller but thinner and have a flat side so you can stack rocks on top. I'd get 3 or so and spread them evenly under your main flat rock. In my 50g I lined the bottle with gravel and then put sand over it so the gravel helps keep them still. Once you get a rock on all 3 they shouldn't move.
