It would have been nice for them to make it so that the filter could have been behind the fake rock background. Would have made it look clean
that would have been cool but the background is less than a inch thick so if they did that it would take a lot of tank space moving the background forward.
Although if one wanted they could probably remove the background cut a few holes in the foam and put the filter back there sacrificing the space. Or build there own filter uising a powerhead some tubing and some bulk sponge making the entire rear into a giant filter.The background looks like its only held on with a couple spots of silicone glue, but ill let some one else try that project
Is power to the lights separate so you can put it on a timer, or all in one like the Chi?
yep lights and filter are separate
