What is the color of your furniture and walls in your house and why does it matter at all?
Well that's the thing with personal opinions... none of them matter at all to anyone else. But since the question was worded "Do you think..." I presumed it to be asking for a personal opinion and gave it. Does it matter? Of course not.

That is an amazingly clean setup; and goes so well with it's surroundings. Do you have it setup with your heater in-line with your return plumbing? How do you like the display flow with the closed-loop pump setup? It sure cleans up the tank appearance, not having side-mounted flow pumps.
Thanks daileyo,
my heater is in the sump (not inline). I've been really happy (corals seem happy too), with the flow I'm getting without any additional pumps. I don't think I'll ever really need to add any even as things grow out because right now I'm only running the valves partially open and have plenty of room to open them up to add more flow.

1. What color is your aquarium stand and why did you choose that color?
White - the rest of the furniture in the room is white as well
2. Do you think the color of your aquarium stand is important? Why or why not?
Yes - IMHO (and I know lots of people like to show off their sump, etc - which I personally enjoy LOOKING AT - as compared to maintaining in a viewable state. IMHO the focus is not the 'stuff' on the bottom - but rather the stuff on the top

So the wife hated the white of the redsea cabinet and I really wasn’t a fan as well. My 15 year old said it look like a refrigerator in the living room So the wife did some looking on Amazon and found this vinyl wrap! Amazing stuff, easy to work with, doesn’t leave a residue and more importantly, matches the rest of the living room

I love natural wood with grain showing.

My DIY Stand with Matching Canopy, and 65 G Tank with Oak Corner trim on edges.

Oak plywood, Solid Coners, and Oak Trim (Stained by hand Mahogany/Cherry Color)

Built 25 years ago. First Photo, while shiny and clean. Located in Kitchen, but visible from Family Room.

Looking at this, it caught my attention that you actually painted the pvc to look like copper pipes and brass fittings with the detail of silver solder for good measure. ;Jawdrop

Totally Clueless
Everybody has their own idea of what looks good. A beautiful stand would be great but my pockets are pretty shallow. And of course the focus is on the display tank anyway. I just started this hobby four months ago with a $20 purchase of a 25g tank and stand and set up a freshwater tank.



I recently found a used 55g tank but didn't like the stand so my son in law made one out of 2x4's and unfinished pine boards. It matches my other rustic furniture and looks pretty good.






FYI I am just starting my first saltwater build.
