Ah thanks so much for the compliment I really appreciate your kind words but yours is awesome in its own way also!! Don't cut yourself short you did a GREAT job! And the scape looks amazing!! Keep up the good the work.

Seriously, again great job. Was there much of an overspray issue?

Thanks!

I think one of the main issue I had was really getting the top darken. You were on point about struggling to paint over the silicone part. I got some spray paint on my wooden floor but was able to remove the specs off easily with some rubbing alcohol.

I also covered most of everything, but I happened to get smudge on the corner of my tank but can be easily removed.

Glad I could help! And yeah the top has always been a challenge for me. But it all worked out and your tank looks GREAT!

I used a sample size can of paint and rolled it on but my tank was already up and running. Worked great
