Wait, sorry if I missed this, but what is the stock? It would look really cool with crayfish and dwarf puffers. Just what I would do

That shark is going to need a tank upgrade ~55G. They get 6+ inches long and like to have a big territory to dominate.

looks awesome.
I was going to try and make a styrofoam BG as well. I keep toggling between that, spray foam, natural stuf etc etc.

Thanks. I've seen the spray foam. Although it looks easy I don't know if I would trust it. I feel like it would fall apart in a year and deteriorate. What i did wasn't to hard, just time consuming, but it was definitely fun

they make exterior UV resistant pond spray foam.



This is what Im going to use. I decided I am blacking out the back of the tank with tint material again (limo dark tint, just ordered) and then Im going to make a more sectioned BG.
Yours looks awesome though, DEF something Id actually pay for!
