That looks really cool, but if you do that, you have to clean the back glass, too! Personally, I let the algae have 3 sides, and only clean the front!

That is really neat. You would be able to change the color t5 too rather than just being stuck with a painted background. (I know...some people have removeable backing)

I know what you mean. I let the back glass turn nice-n-purple. I love the shadowbox but you'd never see it. I tried to keep the back clean but it was an ongoing project.
