That tank looks a lot nicer than any of mine, so you're already way ahead of me. (I still have tape bits stuck to the outside black rim in a couple of places.) Personally, I would rather spend the money on good equipment and healthy livestock than on a pretty tank. As long as it holds water and lets me see what's in it, I'm happy. Of course, I also live with a varying number of destructive critters, so I don't really do aesthetics. It's sort of a futile endeavor when I know it's just going to get chewed up.
