That second picture isn't a 40 gallon, it just looks so beautiful..
I want to go for the "natural habitat" look compared to a display tank look
and those pipes are on the inside
, diy overflow. I think I will consider getting a background then and hopefully it'll help (its just most people I see on the website don't use backgrounds) and melosu, omg your corals are huge! I can see where you could have a problem
thank you very much for the suggestions everyone, I guess its just a matter of adding a background and working with what you got. Plus that island on the right is actually home to my watchman goby and shrimp so I didn't wanna cave their homes in...again
