For all you guys who recommended black construction paper, many thanks. I got it started, I have to temporarily rearrange the canister hoses to complete the installation but the test addition of the paper is absolutely great.

Thanks again.

I have to thank you guys again for prodding me into the black background. It seems to add depth (front to back) to the tank.

I still have to do something about the line at the top (more tape, I think). The tank is close to the wall and one end is close to the credenza on the same wall making it difficult to vet to the center of the back wall of the tank.

Much better, comparing photos in post 1 and this latest. And see how the plants are growing too.

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
