I finally got my tank into presentable shape, so here goes.

Is that a acrylic bow front or glass?

Lovely indeed, nice work.

I would suggest a background, which I think would make quite a difference. Something as simple as black construction paper is what I now use. Tapes on the outside (obviosly) of the back wall. It not only highlights the fish and plants, but makes the space seem larger.

Ditto.

I went with a straight black... or my wife did.... she said it would make the plants and fish "pop" out and hides some of the black components in the tank too.

That looks very nice! Good job! :)

I would also suggest a background.. And black paper is what I've done as well.

Looking good though! What all is in there?

Flat glass. I think the bow in the front is due to camera distortion (Wide Angle)

I am considering that very seriously. I have a tropical stream cling background but I've never used any so ai am hesitant to start (cowardly).

I just get a big sheet of black poster board from Walmart and trim it to fit. On two of my tanks, the stiffness of the poster board holds it in place so I don't even have to tape it. Makes a huge difference on the look of the tank.

Nice job!

Ditto on the background...although I like the more scenic approach. Wallymart has some nice inexpensive ones.
On my 'to do' list I want to try a thin mineral oil background application instead of tape as I think it would appear even more real.
