    Yeah I decided on the big daddy in a corridor due to the higher resolution. That's the current step. Should have that soon :)

    Is the lighting different/all the same, or are they all different? If different, torn between #1 and #3.....

    The third photo has a more reflective surface. I will Be lighting the picture with a hidden rope light behind the foam bulkhead so the reflective properties should give the illusion that it is independent of the display tank.

    Final Prints.. I'm psyched to see which one looks best. My bets on the more reflective 1st print (engineering grade). Mad props go to @ReeferRoo for printing them for me. They look great!

    I like the reflective better...the depth you get when light is on it is crazy, joined with the fact it looks bluish without the light then greenish with direct light kinda gives you 2 looks in 1...as the photos posted are the same print just with and without light!

    So i received the prints (which look fantastic reeferoo) and ordered the rest of the sump plumbing...

    1 - 50' roll of 2" flex hosing
    2 - 4000gph submersible pumps
    1- 16 foot ip68 LED rope light (to illuminate the picture)
    1 - hole saw kit (need some holes cut for the waterbridge)
    6 - cans of Krylon Fusion Expresso

    The next update photos should look pretty cool [​IMG]
