I think it looks awesome! Beautiful tank and discus by the way! Tell me, what type of discus is in your avatar? Love the scaping though. Nice job.

I like both pics but the 1st one is definitely better. Great DW addition.

Really sets the tank off! Awesome. Ever think about a background? Black,blue or even a smoked white something to hide the wires etc.

You don't have to paint it. Window tint film works well. Construction paper even. Play around with colors to find something you like. Not everyone is up to painting and I totally I understand

That is a beautiful Discus. Jealous lol. If you dont like the painted background, you could always scrape it off with no damage to the tank. I am using etched window film as a background for one of my tanks like billbug68 is in his 12L build, and it looks really good.

Thanks he's just a little guy still when he gets bigger he should look sweet. As far as backgrounds go I gotta think on it for a while. But great suggestions thanks
