That's a very cool background, bobme


I have a sheet of plastic, with a freshwater river print taped behind my tank.
The other side has a coral reef print, so I might change it some time, to give my reds the impression they're on a holiday


I'd love to get one of those beautiful Back to Nature backgrounds, but even for a measly 80 gallon tank, it would set me back about 300 bucks......

Bob you can actually get that backround, or any background for the back of your fishtank. Get that pic, go to Kinko's, ask them to blow it up the same demensions as your tank, either have them laminate it or bring home and carefully apply clear packing tape over it. Its pretty expensive, but who cares about $$$ when you wanna make your fishtank look good, right??

Thats what i want my background to look like, i like it a lot.
that is a DIY backround inside of the tank, there are 28 caves in that lava rock backround
I am waiting on my 120 and some warm weather, then I am going to build that DIY background, complete with caves for my Tropheus. Thats alot of lava rocks to silicone onto the plastic gutters and I dont think even the garage could provide adequate ventilation. Something about the all-glass aquarium safe silicone........it smells stronger and the smell lasts so much longer than standard silicone.
