A start is the beginning. I would just suggest a background of plain black construction paper, like you can buy by a sheet in an arts or crafts store. I use this on my smaller tanks.

Byron, is the black construction paper about too much light from behind the aquarium? I thought it was cool to be able to see the back side too, and there isn't that much light from the window. I don't know if I'm ready to lose that.

Not sure I follow, I thought the window was reflected from the front (the side you took the photo from). You should not have 4 sides wide open, this may cause stress on the fish. Also, for viewing, I would find it difficult with light coming from behind. I had an experimental tank like this a year or so back, a 10g in front of the window. No tank light, no filter, and my fist sand substrate. I didn't like it because I could never see the fish well during the day with the light behind them.
