Hey everyone I am new to the forum and so far I am pleased with how nice the people are and how informative this forum is...

Okay so here is my tank
-65 gallon use to be a reef tank
-Custom made 3d background made by me. 1st one so it came out ok I guess.
-Custom sandfall
-Some fake plants Hopefully will swap them out with some real ones.
-So far the only real plants that I have: Java Moss and other plants which I do not know the name off courtesy of MrBrongher (by the way cool dude).
-2nd day with the plants thank God the cichlids have no interest in them so I have hopes in them growing etc...
Anyways feedback is more than welcome.

Update:
uploaded a Video

Very, very nice - I'm so impressed that this is your 1st 3D background! Did you use concrete or Drylok?
The only tip I have for any 3D background is to be sure you have access to all parts of the nooks & crannies, in case you have to get a dead fish out sometime...

I was looking at your tanks and man they look awesome!!! very natural looking... I wish i would have had more time with mines but the wife was not to happy with the mess I had etc...
Thanks! I wish I had better discipline, I always plan on making a well thought out tank, but in the end I get over excited & just throw things in as i get them - lol I really love that you think they look natural - if I could force myself to take the time, I'd like to recreate a stream bed...

Your 3D background is fantastic - it was worth any mess you might have made ; )

Its definitely worth it but next time I'll take my time and give it better shape and colors.
