I'm with lochabar on all points he made. The back of my 75G was painted black when I bought it off craigslist, and it looks awesome.

I'm going to guess that a flat black screen could be laid over the glass, without interrupting too much of your light, but would stop it from reflecting. You can buy rolls of the stuff at home...

Deano85: Yeah, I think it's overbuilt, but I'm not sure. I know the legs are much stronger than they need to be, but that's just part of the look that I want. Although the 6x6 is part of the look...

If you can, use 100% silicone. I've used the cheapo GE 100% silicone in three different aquariums, and haven't had any problems. If you call their number, they won't tell you it's aquarium safe (they...

A mosquito farm is also a lot of fun. Set a bucket of water outside where it gets some sun (not sure why this helps, but it does)

I personally believe the "coffee table" aquarium idea is sort of a bust regardless as how well it's put together. Maybe if you had a 30 foot long, 6 foot wide, 12 inch deep aquarium with sting rays...
