    I may go bare bottom. Lol

    I’m not sure I can live without sand. :-( I’d be able to do it with white starboard though.

    I’ll try anything once. My mind is spinning. A lot of great benefits on both sides.

    High flow across the bottom of the tank gets me excited.

    I hear you. Black ABS or Starboard looks good and is easier than white bottoms.

    I love white Starboard though. Just may do it. I need to find out how to cut it.

    I just found a 0.5”x24”x48” sheet for about $63. Plus they make 1-9 cuts for $20. So for under $100 and pre cut!

    Why don't y'all take that star board, rub some reef safe silicone all over it, then sprinkle it with sand. That way you can vacuum it, not let detritus collect, not worry about power heads, and have the aesthetics.

    But use different colored sand to draw in fishes. Like glitter art

    There’s guys spraying the bottom glass (outside) with white textured paint. The problem I have with that is the glass appears green and the white bottom isn’t really white through the glass.

    Cody, you may be on to something here.
