    Here is the tank set up:

    So, then I decided to paint the Aquaclear 110 intake tubes with plasti-dip too to try and camouflage them a little more:

    So, then I got inspired to put my Eheim canister filter back on this tank, and had more fun with plasti dip

    The stuff is, according to Internet searches, aquarium sage, once it cures. And is more durable that Krylon spray paint.

    Very cool! Did you special order that Aqueon 55? I don't think I've ever seen them locally with black silicone.
    I've considered those LED flood lights myself! Great setup.
