    Yip,I agree with War,black is better.It makes a huge difference.You can go to your local plastics supplier(Maizeys) and tell them you want black plastic sheeting the same as the stuff they use for sign writing on windows.Sticky on one side.You put it on with water and use a credit card to smooth it out.Looks damn good.;)

    These tanks/sumps/systems are not familiar to me DeaneMarine. Could you possibly please post some pics of what you are getting?

    LOL! I too are probably getting old - because I too would like it black rather than "red'ish"...
    And black on the rear glass pane would also look AWESOME!

    Ha ha Not a ballie yet just used to play in a band. But black and a dark blue are really nice colours to use as your back.

    Did you receive the tank yet, Deane?

    My suggestion, would be to have "2 coral bommies" - one on the left, one on the right of the tank, with some flat life rock creating a "tunnel" or "Bridge" between the 2 coral bommies.....

    Hope this makes sense...

    Yes Deane - but with the "Bridge" but much shorter - creating a small tunnel/swim through.... ;)
