Give ya an A for effort :)

My suggestions:
A few taller plants in the back on the tank.
A background on the back outside glass
On the video, less moving around, or at least slower.

Good work, overall!

Backgrounds are personal preference, for sure. I meant something plain, like flat black or light blue, just to hide wires and tubing, or the toilet in the bathroom, etc. Lol. Also helps fish & plants stand out.

That would look nice :)

The name is just something that stuck from a long time ago, I had A boat named Twilight so no one at the boatyard knew anyone elses names, so I was the Twilight guy. Lol

I agree a plain background would really look good exspecially when you get the tall plants along the back. You can use just plain posterboard its cheap and looks good. Its what I have on all my tanks except the 55 and the 55 will have it when I move it again.

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.
