Looks great! Personally, I think an ocean scene would compete with your tank too much. But it depends on how it's done I suppose. I'm not big on those scenes people put at the back of their tanks either.

Possibly have the bottom of the hood be the water line then do a cool sunset so it looks like your half in the water an half out
