I tape the background on with scotch transparent tape. I get water all over the floor in my fishroom, but strangely never down the back of the tanks, so this works fine. here's the 29g which has the black constructino paper; the back just disappears into space.
What would do for a 55?? Will a craft store have a roll of paper they can cut from?

Here it comes in sheets, about 2 feet by 2 feet, roughly going from memory. You would tape a couple sheets together.

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

Good Afternoon, Everyone.

An update. My tank has been doing wonderfully - tested the water a few times last week and again yesterday evening after a 50% water change. Water is a little cloudy, but cleared up quite a bit overnight. I suspect after the filter has a chance to work for a couple days everything will clear up.

All the fish are doing beautifully. The Gourami's are getting along nicely; added a third piece to the tank (rock pagoda) so they each have something of their own. I added an albino cory to keep the other two company.

I found Moneywort at the local petstore and added that to a corner. We'll try this for a few weeks - if this works out I'll remove all the rest of the plastic plants and replace them with live plants.

Thanks for all the wonderful advice and comments.
