The couch is much darker than I would go. But the back of the tank is painted black. Only half of the window would be exposed to the tank with the binds closed and I will be able to darken it out.

Would the sun end up shining in it at any point in the day? Maybe you could paint the side of the tank black to block the sun then you wouldnt have to worry about it at all.

Thanks, when up close to it you can tell that it has been wet before and inside the wood has lots of salt creep. I just got a small sander to get to working on it. My wife said that I can't work on it today

She doesn't want me to spend the money. But I know she likes my 55 as much as I do, she likes to show it to her friends and talk about the coral.
