I often think their is a temptation to  'accent'  a display tank with
furniture, beautiful cabinetry, spote lights, position, etc.  But then I
remind myself if the beauty of the area is the tank,  then everything
else  should be  _understated_  and not accentuated.  I find less
is more!

That's my opinion.
