It is actually kinda easy just time consuming. What I did was googled DIY aquarium backgrounds and then just kinda did my own thing. The hardest part was putting it in. I built mine outside of the tank if I had to do it again I would do it in the tank. I put one heck of a scratch on the glass that drives me crazy. So my next thing I will tell you is if you think you have enough silicon add another full bottle or 2. Cause mine broke loose and I had a lot of fixing to do. Here is one for you and there are even you tube videos aswell. O and you can buy them but they are not cheap and I made mine for under 70 U.S. dollars.

Designing this looks very daunting. Thanks for the site, btw. I might consider designing it inside the tank like you mentioned. Sounds easier. Huge scratch or not, your tank is sweet!
If I have a question, I may ask you, but this site at a glance looks very informative. I appreciate it.

I had no idea! It looks great.
