If you're interested, a still have a couple of short pieces left (for 6"h or 8"h nanos).

Do you know the specific brand name or no? I'd love to try this out on my new nano (1.5gal).

It's artscape. If you pm me the size of your 1.5g, I might have a scrap piece left that I could mail you.

I agree with everyone, that "mist" background looks great, much nicer than a black or blue background I think.

That's Nice! Have you tried using different colored lights for the background yet?

thanks I like that it allows some filtered light in from the window behind, but it states it gives UV protection, so it will maybe help with reducing algae? I'm not sure as it's not of lot of sunlight to begin with, but we'll see.

Not yet... but I want to try out some strip lights with it. I thought I'd try this one from Ikea. I'm wondering if it would create a bright white horizon, fading to light-greyish at the top.

Colors like dark blue would probably look nice too, but that was the typical look I was hoping to avoid. Maybe a pink or orange hue for sunset?

Thanks I admit that I thought he was joking when I first received an email asking to feature my tank. There are so many better tanks out there!

It made me realize that it has been a very educational process along the way and I do like the way it has come together in the last month or so, even if I did stumble into it.
