I like it. It really helps the wires and filter intake blend into the background and not become the focal point.

Thanks guys, the background really makes the tiger barbs stand out too. Now i really just want the plants to fill out, hopefully the flourish and excel will help.

Can't go wrong with a black background.

I had to laugh when I seen your sig. I never paid attention to focal points until I got my camera. You are right my eyes deffinately wanted to go right to the filter tube before. Now I notice there are plants and other stuff haha.
