Welcome to the forum, lots of friendly advice from these members. If i may...... i would suggest a background like black poster board to make the fish and plants both "pop"

i was thinking about doing a 3d background like a rock wall with crevasis for the fish to hide but i can do that for temp and thanks

Its totally up to you, but I personally wouldn't do a 3-D background in a 55-gal tank. You are already very limited on front to back space and those 3-D background will eat up another 6-inches, easily...too much loss for my liking's.

very true maybe just a black back then and experiment the 3d wall in my ten gal?
