Tank Placement

This might be a foolish question...is it a bad idea to place a tank where I will never (without difficulty) be able to access the back? I ordered an SCA 80 gallon and I want to place it up on a counter where the back side of the tank is inset in a bookshelf. I don't know why Id have to get in there, I just don't want to "back myself into a corner" Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks

I would never say never [have to access the back], but I would do it.
As long as you have full access to overflow(s) from the top.

Thanks for the reply! I didn't really see an outright issue. And I could take down the book shelf to get back there if I HAD to....
