    Thank tank and stand look great, but I personally vouch for something to cover up the plumbing. A nice stain on the wood isn't really necessary, just depends on how it fits in your home. But I prefer to have all the mechanical and working parts of any of my projects to be covered from view.

    great looking tank, but i personally would choose to cover the plumbing, although it does look impressive...

    As for the photography question, i guess best way is to light the tank as much as possible, make the room the tank is in as dark as possible and take pic at night... Place your camera on a tripod where you want to take a pic of the fish and wait for them to swim pass and "click"...

    I admit it takes patience but its worth it, just make sure you have the shutter speed up as high as possible..

    Hope that helps?

    Thanks, everyone!

    Regarding the stand, I might end up doing something super simple, like just hanging some wood on the front and sides, nothing "fixed." The more I look at it, the plumbing is more of a distraction than anything, so I may well end up doing something like that to keep it covered up but super accessible still.

    As for the photography, Ghost Writer, that's exactly what I did. I'm just still not very pleased with the results. It's like 96w just isn't enough to photograph in there, which is crazy because it is bright. Even with the ISO at 1600, I can't get bright enough pictures at a fast enough shutter speed. >.>;

    nice! i cant afford a huge tank, the pricetag to set it up is too high for me to keep up with. good job! everything looks happy!

    Thanks, amphirion and jimscott.

    @amph: Yeah, I spent more than I initially planned or wanted to, but a 40g breeder has been my dream tank for a couple years now, so I'm glad I finally have it. Everything on it is super overkill, too, so I should be able to fine-tune everything for a really healthy tank given some time. Always better to have too much and be able to turn things down than to have too little!
