    I took the background off to clean off the water spots and I just can't seem to put it back on. The tank has more depth, it just looks better without one. With a background, it is like a blunt end to the tank, without one it's...I don't know, different...more appealing to MY eye. What do you guys think?

    the tank looks brighter to me with the background off. i would keep it with the background off, it looks nice.

    I'm going to go with you on this one. I like it better without. However, once some junk starts growing on the glass you might want to put it back. I took my background down so i could see through the back glass to try to clean it. It was pretty gross. My background really hides a lot of nasty looking stuff.

    Haha, zash, you obviously don't know me very well. I have been crissoned "Mr. Clean" over on reefcentral by a guy over there. I keep the glass sparkaly clean. If I do keep the background off, I won't have a problem keeping it clean ;)

    I would put it back to make the fish feel a bit more secure. 8)

    I like it without. That's the way I run mine.

    I don't have a vote. It all depends on your preference. I like both.

    How do you borrow someone's pic? I'm not all that computer savy.

    you'll have to host it on a site like photobucket, then use tags. you post it the same way you post a picture in a post.
