Guys, that background on CW's detracts from what is real and what isnt in the tank.

No offense I had the same background but removed it because of real vs fake in pics.

Thats a 40g column tank, from what I can tell by seam lines on there, its a nice tank, id go black or dark green on the background, the fish and plants will pop ALOT better for you.

I think youd have better luck if that BG wasnt on there. I dont mind print ones but some take away from the actual beauty of the tank itself. you got some nice plants going on there.

No surprise there, his aquarium looks great.
I used to have a light blue background but didn't like it at all, and removing a background altogether exposes cords and such. so that's why I have the print BG.

I went to the hobby/craft store spent 5 bucks got 8 feet x 2feet of hunter green cloth, heat activated velcro to the material, my background changes quite often, now its bare on my 52 but not for long, I am growing a moss wall for it in 3 10g tanks. I still use some printed backgrounds but since sea view came along, Ive hated how foggy they become over time, with sea view it never gets foggy and is always 100% crisp and clear.

I think these are both great looking tanks.
I don't realy have a problem with CW's background. It looks good to me.
I always see these start up and go hay I should enter then I see others set up and feel inferior, so I never enter.
