maybe pick something vibrant then..... maybe a yellow or something. once i did a white one and let the kids paint it. and then used that as a background. maybe you can let charlie make you one

If I wasn't Charlie's father I would tell you he is a horrible painter.

Just kidding. But not really.

He can paint the background for the Betta tank.

Yellow might work. Jodie was eyeing the construction board at dollarama this morning but I hadn't picked a color. Maybe next time we're there I'll grab a couple of colors to try.

that is what i do. it's cheap so if you hate it.... less then 2 bucks changes my 60...lol. but i normally go with black. but i will be changing to a blue shade for my main tank. the betta tank has a blue and i think it looks very nice.

lol let charlie paint one. it would be super cute! lol. that or you can draw your own background if you have any artistic abilities.... i personally do NOT....but my hubby does. my daughter's was teddy bears and monkeys at one time. my hubby drew them for her. she loved it.

you can also do like a mesh. cut them up and change the colors so it is multi colored. give it some charicture

I think they'll stand out best against a solid color. They move so fast they get lost against a busy background.

lol i was just being sarcastic. i think a busy background would stress fish out. but try something on a dull level. to bright might dull the color of your fish also

Grey? I've never seen a grey background. Might be a reason for that.

I'll buy a bunch of colors to try. Charlie can make robots out of what we don't use. He makes robots out of everything.

did my tests today *i know a little late* everything is 0 across the board. thank god. almost soiled myself though. put the wrong amount of drops in and my ammonia was reading 8. and nitrites and nitrates reading 0. thought i was going nuts. i was trying to figure out how the tank got so high. and why no fish have died with the ammonia that high either. lol.
