So, I decided I'm finally going to do it, and make a nice 3d background for one of my tanks.
Ill probably end up using silicone, black "pond foam" in a can, krylon fusion paint, and some pumice rocks. This tank will be less of a "aquarium", and more of a "paludarium", since I will likely end up putting some planting areas above the water line, and a little waterfall.
Anyone ever don something similiar?
I'm going to try to mimic a slightly brackish volcanic "pond" in hawaii, and add either fiddlers or Opae Ula shrimp.
Anyone else ever made a 3d background?
How did you do it?
I've seen several methods.. Some people use concrete and seal with marine epoxy, silicone, or "drylok", and decorate with either tinted drylok, siliconed rocks and sand, or paint with krylon.
I think silicon, foam, and paint will be the easiest route to the look im looking for though, also its cheaper and completely safe.
