Nice tank and DW! I love rimless tanks, they look very sleek and make awesome planted tanks IMO.

It's a modified Fluval Chi-before modification it was very nice looking, but was not very reliable.

Have you considered putting a solid background on the tank? It's JMO, but I feel like a solid background gives the tank a more polished look. I always spray paint it black, but you can go to just about any chain store and pick up a little bit of the tape on background- most have one that is black on one side and blue on the other- and just cut to fit and tape on.

That's a good idea-that would increase the amount of light in my tank, wouldn't it?

Not necessarily. It may reflect some of the light but I doubt you'd see much of a difference in PAR with or without a background.

Your driftwood looks really good. I like those shapes.
Just a note, black actually absorbs light rather than reflecting it. However, I agree that having a background wouldn't really change your light enough to matter.

Nice pieces of driftwood, they will look great in the setup.
