Well, this is my general idea of a "painted" tank...

Excuse the diatom bloom, I just added more sand to that tank.

Ok my 20g is just painted black on 3 sides, nothing with a design to it. I bought it used that way. But it's so dark! And I think of oceans being bright and sunny! Lol I have 6 different fish that eat every kind of algae because I like it by the window haha! My 10 g has a pet store bought background and I just love it. I just bought a 29g(I think lol) to replace my 20g because I hate the black so much and want to give my fish more room

I know I'm not doing black, I want black angelfish so they wouldn't show up.

I have an angelfish, they told me they are hard to keep but I haven't had any problems. And they are interesting to watch too, kind of have their own personality lol

From the same poster? It looked real nice, the stand was handmade. The people selling it were real nice, let me look through some of their extra equipment and decor, which they were selling dirt cheap. Call them!
