They are good light. Nothing wrong with fluorescent, either is fine.

Perhaps a couple chunks of wood? Three smallish bits of Malaysian Driftwood.

Wood wasn't listed, so I mentioned it. Your call on how much. A single largish chunk will make the tank size appear smaller, whereas 2 or 3 not too large chunks will tend to expand the space visually.

You can post it to photobucket and link to the image. Pretty simple once you learn how.

Oh that makes sense I guess I will just pick up another piece from the local petco. So other than that everything looks good?

Missed the question on photos. If you look down below the post box in which you type, there is a button "Manage Attachments," click that, up pops a small window with a button "Browse" at the top, click that. Then find the photo on your pc and double click it.

That worked. I would suggest angling the wood, the thickest end (on the left i the photo) perhaps in the back left corner, with the wood extending diagonally with the right end then about 3-4 inches back from the front glass. It will not be as centered--which always emphasizes the rectangular shape of the tank, and diagonally it may make the tank look deeper. The diagonal will still have the arch effect.
