So the stand was al brown, so i decided to paint it over with black paint on the outside and white on the inside. Also painted the back of the tank black and put a black mat over it. Here are some pics of what the tank looks like.

It's all about the basics. Truly "caring" about your setup and devoting the time to making it all work. PATIENCE is perhaps the best action but the hardest to come by at times.....
