Final dry fit of the 3D BG

I'm going to carve a little more out around the intake, esp. on the left side so it's a smoother transition. Some tweaking of the carving, and I'm good to go onto the next step!

I've been thinking about adding pieces of styro like a "bridge" over the tube of the intake. I couldn't put the whole BG forward enough to hide it, because the 29 is so shallow a tank. But I may put pieces over the tube, leaving the grill exposed. That way I'll still be able to remove the filter & intake for cleaning, and all but the grill will be hidden. What do you think? (however it would be easier to hide the intake with a sword or java ferns and driftwood- my first choice - lol)
