Looks great, how long did it take the background to stop releasing ammonia etc? I know a few who made the backgrounds and said it took a while for them to stop leaching.
I do like a nice angel tank and yours is really nice.

Thanks :)

My backgrounds don't leach anything, they are ready for use 5-6 hours after sealing. :)
