The biggest problem with planting just the back corners is that you may not have enough growing plants to avoid algae. There are always additions of ammonia to an aquarium, caused by fish and rotting of plant debris. It takes a lot of plants to quickly consume that ammonia or algae will take over. So, the general rule is to initially fill a tank with fast growing stem plants, then only after the tank is stabilized, start replacing those with the plants you really want to keep.
