More photos tonight.

Going to go with a black background for now with this tank. Checking the LFS's today for the glossy black vinyl. If I can't find that I'm painting it on with coats of Latex paint as a) I plenty leftover from the stand construction and b) it comes off easily with a razorblade if want to change. Once setup I think I'll pick up a second tank and work on a nice 3d background and create a non/less planted cichlid tank. The main focus of this one is going to be high tech planted with smaller schooling fish.

Figured out the splashguard, there's a slot in the right hand side of the cover that it slides into. The fixture puts out a LOT of light, really nice! Cant' wait to see how the setup looks when the tank gets filled, substrated and the moonlights on.
