daitran89 Darn, i shouldve went darker haha. I bought a frosted film on amazon and just installed it earlier. It's not too bad, still see the HOB filter ^^

somewhatshocked If it were me, I'd go black or as dark as possible to help hide the equipment in the back.

Poster board definitely works well. So does construction paper.

My favorite is cheap adhesive shelf liner. Just use an old gift card or ruler to smooth out the bubbles as you're applying it. Then use a razor blade to trim off the excess. If there are bubbles you can't smooth out, use the blade to slice them and then just stick a bit more of the vinyl on to hide the cut. Has worked really well for me.

Can be picked up at Home Depot or any big box store for less than $10. The most recent kind I've been buying looks like faux leather on the surface but the back (the part that sticks to the tank and is visible) is completely smooth.

hunterlook Just ordered a frosted film background for my tank. I'm not big on colors to interfere with the setup but the frosted adds to the modern look of rimless tanks such as yours.

TheAnswerIs42 I went to the dollar store and got a bunch of different poster boards of various colours and cut them to size. It was a great experiment and only cost about $6 for 5 different backdrops. At the moment I am loving a dark blue background.

daitran89 Sorry for the no updates guys!

Took down my office 4g cube tank last friday because we're in the process of moving to a newer/much larger office =D

Planning to set it up again once we're settled in, probably in couple weeks. Layout will be REALLY simple, mostly driftwood.

I just got my driftwood package from Tom, soo many great selections!!

To be continued....
