    I love the tank, Have you tried a black background? You dont have to use those plastic stick on ones you can use a bit of black cloth like a bit of black bed sheet.

    I hadn't thought about putting cloth back there. I dreaded the thought of trying to add a background when it weighs a ton but that's a nice idea thanks Nick
