Tank looks messy.

Hey all.

Ive just set up my new SW tank and im abit gutted about all the machinery inside the tank, eg protien skimmer, pump and all the air tubes.... it just looks messy.

Does anyone have any tips on how to smarten things up a bit?

Also how does my skimmer need to be set up?








many thanks Dan

sump............. thats the short answer LOL.... then you only need an over flow and power heads showing in the DT (display tank) and all the other junk goes into the sump )skimmer etc.... much cleaner look....

A black background will help a lot. The black power heads won't show as much.
