Thought I would Start a thread on my last journey. Opinions and advice are welcomed. This may be a long process but this is where I am so far...





<a href="http://s136.photobucket.com/albums/q168/sisterspage/?action=view&current=912b4d2b.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://i136.photobucket.com/albums/q168/sisterspage/912b4d2b.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket Pictures, Images and Photos" /></a>

Can't decide on the background so far... Any advice?

Planning on more plants and decor later of course

Going for a red and green contemporary type style?? Lol
this tank turned out so well it's my inspiration...

Please help me vote for a background and I will update when changes have been
Made

If you are doing colorful fish (which I think you are...) then I suggest black for the bg.
