I'm thinking about painting it. Is that a good idea?

It sure is, just more involved. Especially if there is no room between the tank and the wall.

Well, I'm building a new stand soon, so I will have a little time when we move it. Just not much. I may have to do something other than paint.

I've never painted one myself but have seen several threads on here where they pain them and it doesn't seem too hard. Of course you will need to be careful not to get any paint inside the tank.

I think it looks like it is a really clean look. I probably should have done it before cycling and stocking my tank, though. I'm thinking maybe a background like this one.

I think so too. It looks natural, I think. I found it online, so hopefully my LFS carries it. Maybe in the next few weeks I can get started on my stand. I really despise the one I have. Lol.

Yeah, this is an ever changing hobby. I'm constantly tweaking this and checking that. Moving things around, adding coral. Lol, I enjoy every minute of it! Make it your own, your the one that has to be happy with it.

I love that its always changing. It would be so boring otherwise! My power head is here in town and the tracker says I won't get it until Monday. Blah!

Lol, I just adjusted some rocks and trimmed my halimeda plants. I hate waiting for snail mail. Lol.
