New tank journal : Tree design (i know, how original)

This is my first new tank in a long time, not trying to be avant garde, just a tank to enjoy. The goal is to have a pristine look, with ZERO equipment in the tank. The filter is drilled through bulkheads in the back. Heater is in the filter, CO2 is going to be inline. The back panel is painted black, and the black inlet and outlet disappear against it.

Tank: Custom made Leemar 48x20x15, Starfire glass no-brace
Stand: Custom made with veneer matched to other furniture
Lights: 4 foot 4 bulb fishneedit.com fixture, suspended over tank (the hanging fixture needs to be adjusted down, looks weird right now)
CO2: 10lb aluminum canister from Micromatic and regulator from GreenLeafAquariums
Substrate: Aquasoil II, Manzanita tree, other driftwood, seriyu rocks
Filter: Eheim Pro II Thermofilter 2128

Here is what it looks like today:
