Aquarium backgrounds

This is a discussion on Aquarium backgrounds within the Beginner Freshwater Aquarium forums, part of the Freshwater Fish and Aquariums category; --> THAT it def does. That's why I also pref dark substrates (black gravel or black sand) makes the colors pop soooo much better...

I wish I would have gone with all black. Mine is black and white, more black than white though. It came with the tank and I decided to use it because I already had it. I think with a black background it will make a world of difference though Now I just have to find it!

So I ran over to Petsmart and they had the black background inthe height I needed! The otherside has blue so really I can choose which color I want, but i have a feeling i'm going to love the black!

Funny you mention, I couldn't quite pinpoint what it was about my tank that I didn't really like. At first I did want to change my gravel, but then I realized it would be a huge hassle. I also wanted to add more plants. I thought that would make the fish much happier and look nicer at the same time. So like I said, I added more decorative plants last night during my PWC. I think that did it. I like it MUCH better with more plants. And I think with the black and white gravel the black background will look awesome I'm going to absolutely love it (HOPEFULLY!!). I'll let you know tonight when I get home

Where are you located at Lisa?.........I have sheets of black ABS plastic..(same plastic used for the tank base and top frames)..........If you would like something you would never need to replace, i could mail you a piece cut for your tank size..........Do you have the standard 55 gallon tank?

I actually just bought a background poster in black. Let me see how that works out and if it turns into a hassle, I'll let you know. Thanks for thinking of me!

No problem..............nice thing about the plastic, if it gets water streaks on, you can take it off and clean it..........Wish you the best of luck with your tank!!
