Here's a little constructive criticism...I would lose the background and maybe go with a black background, You want the focus to be on your plants, not a picture of plants...Move the heater behind the vals so you can't see it and lose the sponge filter, It's an eyesore and it will also out gas co2. Get you a good canister filter, I just bought a XP2 for less than 100 bucks at bigalsonline...that's just my opinion, Their like as*****s everybody's got one and there all different

I suspect several people think you should change your chosen background, however, I say if you like the effect; go with it. That being said, if you want more focus on your plants, go with dogg76's suggestion. I also have a black background on my 55. If you do change, if possible, paint it black.

Overall, nice start, keep us posted on the progress.
