Thank you guys, here are the pictures of the finished fans, We were able to get the exhaust fans completed which will be controlled by Humidity & Temperature controller, We installed new diamond aluminum plate on the ceiling, I am not sure if I should paint it white or leave it as it is? Please advise...

Yeh that is what I would do just personal taste but think it would look really good like that.

I think it depends on whether you want it to stand out or blend in. Personally I would do the safe thing that David said. I wouldn’t want the diamond plate standing out and detracting from the amazing tank you will be setting up.
