Wood grain facing


I'm putting in 2x6 supports for an aquarium stand I'm building. I want to stack 2 2x6 boards for each up right so it will be more like a 4 x 6. Dies it matter which direction the grain runs? Facing towards each other, away from each other, or in the same direction?

Thanks!

You do know 2 X's laying flat will have very little strength.
It would help if you post a picture of what it is your trying to do.
