This is what I have done so far

You should paint the back so you can't see through.

Yeah I think it would make your tank POP a lot more.

I normally have a black backround, I was working on tank today. If I were to paint it I really would have a hard time doing stuff lol. It does look a lot better with the background. I'll post pic when I'm done playing around back there

Black or blue are the usual colors.

Seems like a lot of people use Krylon Fusion spray paint.

Personal I like black, it allows the color of the fish and coral to really show.

Nothing really new happening with the tank. I have a phosphate issue and will probably pick up a GFO reactor tomorrow. I'm a little concerned about my alkalinity. Has been at 6.5. Thinking of picking up some Kalk for my ATO. I'm probably going to go ahead and pull the trigger on another MP10w tomorrow as well.
