Aquarium Background Ideas?

Recommended Posts

I'm late to this thread! :o

 

I haven't looked at all the links supplied so maybe this has already been mentioned :rofl

 

But on the 40B, I just got a few sheets of scrapbooking paper and taped them all together. I got this cool shiny, crinkly purple paper which 1) adds a nice texture if you don't want a flat looking back, and 2) hides the seams a little bit. Tape em, cut it to shape, add a tie-dye peace sign :D

 

I have made plenty of messes on that tank (it's the one I always seems to overflow :yikes) but it still looks good. 

I can't for the life of me find good full-tank shots, or the thread when I first set it up, so here's a crappy video? 

Thanks Jenna! :nana I'm digging thank :nana

I may do that with my 29 gal tank in the living room :D

For my 55 gallon I ordered some vinyl decal from etsy today and a plain blue background from petsmart. I'm gonna put the decals on my glass and the background over it for some dimension and interest :Jig:

I'm stoked! I'll post pics here when I'm finished :D

Looking forward to it.

A good background can really make the display stand out. 

 

I don't know if they are around any more, but there were some old Tithra videos where she just paints the background.  Easy off with a razor, if you change your mind.  I always thought Mylar, sort of a semi-mirror effect might work well.  I also like the frosted backgrounds that are popular with the high end aquascapers, like GreenMachine.

I just put up the new background! My hubby helped too! Wray do you all think!

Sorry about the cloudiness. I just did a big wc and cleaned the filters. I couldn't wait to take pics!
