Impressive. I left a comment for you in your profile.

The only thing that I would suggest is that you get rid of the backdrop. When running a SW tank, you will get what is called "salt creep" between the glass and the backdrop. It looks good now though.

I agree. I used to have one a long time ago and I got rid of it because it did not do anything but collect salt creep. I would suggest you add these pics to the gallery.

A lot of SW people (myself included), paint the back of the tank. My preference is black. It makes everything stand out more. It's quite simple if you want to go that route.

IMO, you should just roll a couple of layers of black latex house paint on the back of it. It's real easy and makes everything stand out in the tank. If you dont like it, it comes off easily with a razor blade. Again...this is just my opinion.
