    Wow! big tank, nice photo's too, lots of options there. Personally I like backgrounds, unless the tank is a room divider.

    Looks good! I really like the background color. Is that painted or just a lighting effect? I don't see too many people using sumps in a planted tank, so that's something new to me. I would just suggest getting more plants in there & adding some larger wood that reaches out into the center of the scape.

    Thanks for all comments.

    trenac, I don´t use backgroud color in this aquarium, it´s can be a light effect :), because the white wall. I´m looking for some driftwood and some cool rocks, but is not so easy :)

    Regards,

    Adilson
