link didn't work for me... by the way, what are the dimensions of a 10g tall? is it a tall 5.5 footprint, or somewhere between 5.5 and 10?

Very beautiful, very, very tall tank. I'm impressed by the heathly growth on the plants, and the tetras look happy.

Looks great! I like the tank layout. The garbage bag on the back could use some straightening though

Can't you just get a sheet of black background? They usually have it at most aquarium stores.
