Aquascape in progress. This is not my work, I bought off the owner (Nick Nguyen) from the best LFS at Oceanlife Aquarium in Houston, TX. He made this for his tank project, but I couldn't resist. Now I just need to build off that and create an additional rockscape to fill the tank.

Since things are unassembled, I thought it would be cool to wrap the inside sump area with red carbon fiber vinyl. Also going to paint the various items white inside the sump. I'm going to go for a red and white sump area including the equipment and plumbing.

Yup, that's one of my little one in the background. It's a IM 14 Peninsula and my other one is a Nuvo 16. Thanks for the welcome!
I was talking about the diapers ;) awesome preliminary aquascape by the way, I bet that will look amazing covered in corals.

End up not liking the black covers for the screws, so I'm going to cut out some red vinyl to cover it so it can look seamless.

Nice! Following along.

How difficult is vinyling the inside?
Just like the reef hobby itself, it will take patience and some redos, BUT it's doable. Once you get one thing wrapped, the rest is much smoother. Slow and patience is the key. This project took me around 12 to 14 hours total. I spread it out because it can be tideous and boring, which can lead to mistakes.
