That is an issue with those backgrounds. I recall another member a while back who had an angelfish or something that "fought" with its reflection continually.

For a couple dollars max, a sheet of black construction paper will solve this.

It will be available in art craft type stores, maybe hobby stores, or stationers. Just plain black construction paper for making posters, etc. I bought a sheet and cut it to fit the tank.

Hi Guys,

Long time since I updated. Just remembered at work so I thought I would get the gf to take a pic while she was in. Not the best quality but it is an iPhone. Hopefully I can get some closer ones soon. What do you think? I have two filters in there at the moment. My freind gave me his EX1200 so I am just breaking that in and then I will remove the Eheim 2215 and then rearragne the piping so it doesnt look as ugly.

I think its really coming on :)

Wow it is really, really nice I love the little section to the left of the middle with the rock circle and plant in the middle. Very nice tank!

Kindest Regards,
Amanda

Keeping fish its not a hobby it is a passion!

55 gallon, 44 gallon, one 20 gallon tank, three 10 gallon tanks, and a 2.5 gallon all with real plants.

I have MTS and there is no cure.

Awesome, I'm loving the aquascape!
