that is freakin awesome .... wonder if my hubby would let me do the same thing. painting the wall would be sooo much easier than painting the tank (for me anyway) lol i can imagine the tank set up, some feature lighting and a few white background fishy pictures hung above the tank to break the black up, would look awesome and be such a different talking point in the house :)

good luck with the wife's opinion

Wow Mate,

Did you ever think that this idea might catch on???? I just showed my better half and....I am not allowed...... or I can but it will have to be in "another house I buy as this is the house I bought for her....and not my fish" .. And I wanted to suprise her with your great new home reno designs.. I even suggested that if you had a nice painting or something on the wall to break up the black but she wouldn't have it.

Mind you who am I to mention that our new reno's included a 1K + chandelier with 30 + lights ( and our house could be used as a light house) and a dark red feature wall in "our" bedroom....

Good on you mate for looking outside the box... and out side the house into the shed ( your new home.)

Hopefully the wife doesn't think outside the box too and decides to paint part of the car black... (if it isn't already).

But good work on your behalf :D

well heres the update so far I left before she got home and went out with some mates for drinks and a game of poker I just walked in the door to a wife sitting on the lounge shaking her head trying not to laugh.

She said to me what the @#$%% were you thinking. That you will do anything to get your own way (win)

I don't see how this is true,

1. she made a suggestion on what she wanted not be done? is it my fault that I'm a male and thought of a solution that was outside the specifications that were stipulated,

2. She didnt say anything about not painting the wall black. is it my fault that there was no clarity around the rules?

3. She called me a smart ass ***** and went to bed, I thought the coast ws clear and started to piss myself laughing at all the comments that have been written on this thread the wife came back down the stairs and asked whats so @#$%ing funny.

So I showed her what has been written on the forum, I recevied a clip over the back of the head and told to collect the donations that might eventuate from the forum to buy a tent to live in from now on.

I went outside to be with only friend my most loyal companian who never judges me or my actions, @#$% its cold out here atm ROFL it was worth it

I will put more pics up when done.

Druid that is classic mate definalty a story to tell for years to come. Don't worry about the wife she will probably calm down in a day or so. You hope :). She is probably happy that you got up and did something without being asked. Well mine would be anyways. you may have started something though next she will want the house completely done. Good luck mate.

You have guts mate but I like it, while you doing the painting on the wall do the shed as well because that maybe the place you going to stay for a couple of days if not weeks. Good luck!!!

ok setup is taking shape water in and clear I forgot to clean the back of the tank so looks a bit grey with water runs on the back of the tank LOL but painting the walls black works a treat judge for yourself here are some picks I will be putting 10 Fronnies in here about 8-15cm atm I think they will like it instead of the blue 44gal drum there in atm I will add them to the tank soon.
