Finally re did my tank.. I'm pretty happy with the look. I really enjoy the process of arranging elements in the tank.... Since I really shouldnt just re do this one every month I guess I'm just gonna have to get 1 more.... Well maybe 2 more..

1st pic is 6 years ago when I first set it up.. 2nd pic is a month ago. 3rd pic is my first re do.. 4th pic is after changing and adding some plants but I still wasmt completely satisfied so I turned the driftwood on the left upside down and moved a few rocks and now I'm pretty happy with it for now.

It looks so perfect it almost doesn't look real. Good job. Are some of the plants painted on a background? If so you did a fantastic job of it.

Thank you but no that's actually a vinyl aquarium background. In the first pic there is none and the second pic I just had it taped on the back. Then in the 3rd and 4th pics I had used the adhesive oil and applied it to the back glass. It really made a huge difference as some of it looks so real.

Those vinyl backgrounds definitely add a lot of depth to a tank. I have one on the back of my 55. It serves a double purpose. Looks really good and hides all the filters and wires.

This is what my background looks like. Plants have been changed and I now have a sand substrate..
