How to cover bulkheads?

Recently acquired a tank from a friend that was previously used for SW. I do not want a sump. Are there clear bulkhead plugs or do they only come in black?

The clear fix is glass or acrylic bonded to both inside and outside of aquarium, sealing off the hole.

For the faster fix, without sheets, a short plumbing black bulkhead, with slip plug on outside, threaded or slip plug on inside, use teflon tape, and cover it with substrate.

They come in black and white.

thanks! The holes are on the back so I will just go with black bulkheads and do a dark blue background
