Does anyone like the way my tank looks so far?

Excuse the bucket on top of the tank, was adding some water using the drip system

I find using a black background and black sand brings out the life in the tank much more than blue background and normal sand. Also, I recently used blue sharpie on my led lights ahaha! I originally bought a marine double light bright, it had like 16 whites and 8 blue LEDs. I just colored over most of the white LEDs and I really looks better. I prefer a bluer tint in the water like most reef aquariums without having to buy expensive leds or actinics

You're tank looks great . Yeah black def. makes the colors pop. All it needs now is real colors ! I've never heard of someone coloring over the LEDs. The appearance changed, but does the spectrum change?

Everything looks good. I don't have any corals or nems so it doesn't even matter lol. Plus, even if I didn't color over the LEDs, my fixture isn't powerful enough to keep corals, maybe mushrooms.. Eventually I'm going to either buy a DIY kit from rapidled or buy t5s

Sounds good, yeah since they were all white LEDs I figured they weren't capable of growing corals, but I was just wondering how that worked.

I think the tank looks great! I also like the black sand, have heard its a pain to keep clean, so let us know how that is for you!! I'm planning a 125g within next year, might try the black sand if its not hard to take care of. you did a good job on the rock work, made some crevices for fish to hide. Good job! Keep us posted on your progress!!

It does get dirty quickly, but I'll find a way to fix that
