The first video in the series is live now. Please let me know if you have any suggestions for the future episodes.
Great video, wife and I started watching last night. I would love to get into streaming myself but have no idea how to start, not how to budget my time.
I'm thinking about not adding black vinyl to the back and keeping it clear? What do you guys think?

I am so glad you skipped the vinyl. I read somewhere about background lighting. Your tank needs something like this:


In fact needs maybe should be replaced with the word deserves.

Or you could go way over the top and put a thin display screen behind it connected to a mini PC and display actual reef scenes behind it.

Wow I really like that background lighting!! I've never seen that before. Thanks so much for the idea.

Looks great actually found it last night on YouTube. Question on the lights and support how high are the lights from the top of the tank with that mount? Do you happen to know what height GNC recommends?
Thank you

Oh no way! That’s cool YT recommended it to you. The GNC light bridge has the lights hang 5” above the tank and about 6-7” above the water level, but you can mount them higher if you want. Aquarium Partners tested the light at full power and got PAR readings of 890 around 6-8” below the water. Peppe_reef posted some similar PAR readings as well,
