My only problem with this is that it would take away from the other lights and the view of the tank with the corals and I am not sure I would like it.
Not true. I thought the same thing but was pleasantly surprised when I first tried it. It definitely subtle but if I turn off my backlights, the tank just looks dull and lack the depth it has when they are on.My tank has a back back gound, you would not be able to see the light either way. Not to mention when the main lights are on I would think it would be difficult to see the background light.
This sounds really nice. Very clever idea.It’s funny you mention this… because it’s the exact look I’m going for. While my video shows the filtering of the light colors… the entire intent is to have an open ocean look when viewing the tank and the light kit will be set to a sunrise/sunset type look…. It won’t be constantly filtering through all of the colors that the light offers.
This is one of the main reasons I went with a peninsula and then set it up in a standard position. No overflow or any equipment on the back glass. I’m imagining looking into the tank and seeing a deep ocean… the scape will utilize NSA - negative space aquascape. The center will be open water and I’ll have a scape on the left and on the right.
I can see it in my head… just hoping it comes out the same way.
Still fooling around with colors. Tank us still new. Def wont go with crazy colors. Going to keep the blues during the day to work with my lights then ill get it to the orangish during sunset seems to work pretty well. We will see. I did not put the frost on back just clear glassVery cool!
