Nice zoo collection! I think the tank would look even nicer with a background though.

Did you pick the turtle grass at the local shore?

I got my turtle grass from Playa Jobos about seven years ago.

That is the one by Montones(shacks)? The beach with the big rock in the center surrounded by the reef that has a manatee?

It has the caves(cuevas?) under the reef?

Many divers go there, very beautiful.

Love the zoo collection

Consider painting the back of the tank (on the outside )- works better than those solid backgrounds and probably a bit cheaper.

I would just put a plastic background from the LFS on it (black or blue). That way you can change it if you get tired of one color.
