Here is one of the entire 55 gallon. I have some danios, and a couple cories in there right now. I am yet to fill the tank with lots of plants. This is an initial setup.

I have the same question, i have an old tank with stains. IS yours on that soft plastic frame area at teh top? I have some there and a razer blade will cut into the softer plastic. I have used alcohol swabs before and it does the job for the lgihter stains but the chunkier ones are impossible.

Sincrisis, the stains are actually in the middle left of the tank, although from this angle you cannot see them. Thanks willow I am trying to make it look nice but it needs some larger plants. See that cave to the right covered in java moss? There is actually a dojo loach hiding in there but with the java moss you cannot see him. Thats his favorite spot.

Do you think a background would help at all?

You should buy a small patch to see if it helps at least a bit

If you can barely see it then it shouldn't really matter... it will dissolve eventually in the water anyway wont it?
