I am using cutting board in my tank, so you shouldn't have any problems. If you want it just where the rocks sit - then that is just a personal choice and is fine. Some prefer the whole bottom and if you don't - no big deal. Though if you drop a rock or have one fall for whatever reason it is nice to have the whole bottom covered for protection.

I bought a big piece of 1/4" industrial food service cutting board from a local plastics company, same as Starboard HDPE only much cheaper. Covered the entire bottom, looks great, less worry about falling rocks.
