Love that effect. It'd be worth it just for nighttime viewing. Very innovative!

thank you for the compliment!

i've considered doing that. i may move up the blyxa and put another rock in the middle.

the golden nesaea pedicallata on each side will probably end up being pulled as it's just not doing very well and the leaves are starting to fall off, so i'll be looking for another easier yellow plant to put there.

update.

i removed all my neon tetras (that was fun! *sarcasm*). my angels have now become big enough to snack on them. i found a half eaten body floating at the surface one morning, so i found it best to remove them all.

i also cleaned up the sand river as it was covered with algae, and added 2 cute little bristlenose plecos that i hardly ever see, haha.

my staurogyne repens carpet is coming in great.

do you think it would be safe to add 2 german blue rams ? the current stock now is 6 blue platinum and marble angels, 4 sae's, and 2 bristlenose plecos. i'm using an odyssea canister filter rated for 100 gallons. i've seen that rams make good tankmates for angels.

The frosted background looks great. It gives the light a really nice glow effect, just like it would have in the sea.

Did you use a sticky film for this, or was it an already frosted panel?
