    Well, you don't want the rock to be directly blasted by the flow. I would use the rock position in Drawing #2 but put the two powerheads in the back corners, facing diagonal, so that they hit the front glass at an angle. This will create some counter currents throughout the tank.

    thats a top down view. The powerheads go at the top of the tank angled inward, and should blow across the top of the rock line not directly at it.

    Sorry for the confusion. That's a top-down view.

    so what is the front view for it ... put the powerheads down near the substrate of up near the water surface ...
    and i recognize you said to make the powerhead current tangent to the rocks surface and directed to the front side of the tank ... from back to front ???? Am i got it right ???

    Up near the water's surface. The powerheads should create a ripple on the water's surface. And yes, put the powerheads at the back, directing the water flow towards the front of the tank.
