    love the idea, and craftsmanship.
    hard to tell via pics, but do the orange "glows" wash out anything in the tank?

    i did the front panel clear specifically to avoid that but if you look threw the neon panel it actually increases warm colors but washes cool a bit. so reds and orange explode! but blues and purples are lost

    i see the clear front, I am speaking of the color that reaches your retina from the orange sides over powering W/E he puts in it. ( if that makes sense, I have had a few IPA's tonight)
    kinda like if you park a red car next to a white building in mid day. the wall of that building will look pinkish do to reflection.
    Only say this because the white lettering on the pump look orange to me in the pic. If he did a GLO tank. that would be (as the kids say) sick AF fam!
