So I've bit the bullet and am going to be buying a custom made ultraclear rimless 4x2x1.5. Tank builders have lots of access to equipment so I can have notches cut out, holes etc.
Currently the plan is to have a large external overflow on the back of the tank, with a large notch cut out of the top of the rear panel like in the photo below. I really wanted the entire rear panel to be a nice tealy gum-leaf colour however, which the overflow box will stop being that it's siliconed to the rear panel. I was originally planning for it to be vinyl wrapped, but quickly realised that the plumbing would still be visible.
I'm really trying to go for a COMPLETELY invisible overflow here, so that I get the same effect as a tank with a painted background without overflow. Some suggestions on ways to achieve this and other ways I can improve and modify the overall design would be greatly appreciated!

How happy are you with the lighting "color" of your saltwater aquarium?
