    Try adding a background, either black or blue. Try vinyl or ABS plastic

    Nice start.
    But is 2*12000 SunSun pumps enough flow for a 1800x800x800 tank?

    Background, can use black or blue ABS sheet from Maizey. 0.9mm thick.

    What about a picture of your sump?

    Welcome bbman nice setup & yes having a bigger volume of water is better but one little bit of advice or 2cents slow down & take your time stocking your tank as bad things happen quickly & believe me it happens to many of us. Patience is the key to a healthy reef.
