    Yea! The tank looks really good. Some type of a background fixed to the outside back wall would hide the cords and add some definition. Blue or black generally show off your fish the best.
    Keep those photos coming :o)l

    The most inexpensive but effective background is a sheet of plain black construction paper. Depending upon the tank size, one or two sheets will do you, and you just cut it and tape it on the back. I have found this about the most effective background, as it is not shiny and being black the rear tank wall sort of disappears, creating the illusion of more space. And fish and plants and wood looks very nice against black. This will make a vast difference...and be appreciated by your lovely new pleco.

    Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]

    looks really good. The plants are growing nicely
    how's that gorgeous pleco doing?
    I can't tell if you have a cave in there but your pleco would love you if you bulit him one out of flat rocks. Doesn't have to be big. My ABNP has a cave I built from 3 slate like rocks no more than 4 - 5 inches across. Just stacked then solidly so there is a hollow for her to fit into and surface space she can hang onto upside down. mine often sleeps in her cave hanging upside down on her rock - sometimes she falls asleep so hard her suction lets go and I'll find her on her back on the substrate. Scared me have to death the first time I found her that way because I thought she was dead :o)

    Your tank looks very nice. Only thing needed is a black background to hide the wall behind and make everything "pop" more. Black poster board would work nicely.

    I do have one but I removed it so that it wouldn't get wet while I was cleaning the tank :)
