Water flow through rock work

I know the wall aquascape is generally frowned upon and often called a pile of rocks look, but I really like it. My only concern is that it doesn't seem like much water circulation gets through the rocks and probably traps a lot of food and fish waste. I plan on having a lot of caves and holes for the fish to hide in if that makes a difference. Here is what I kind of want mine to look like.


Advice for anyone new to the hobby: Do your research!! Before you do anything to your aquarium, take some time to research it. It has made a huge difference for me

S.A. Flooded Jungle (20 gallon)
A heavily planted tank. Inhabitants include: 7 Lemon Tetra, 1 Whiptail Catfish, and MTS.

Yup, it will trap garbage in it, but then again thats what we get a CUC for, right. Also, the bigger pile you see in the general middle there, is covering the overflow for the tank.
