New 3D background!
I have been wanting something different then just a black background for awhile now. I started weeks ago looking on how to make one. After looking at pictures and researching I finally can up with something like this:
Its still going to be a week or so before I actually use it. Right now I have it in mock up tank. That tank has a small leak on the bottom and don't feel like fixing it. So I used it as mock up tank. Now the question is it displaces about 10 gallons of water making my 55 gallon a 45 gallon in reality. I have 5 Angelfish in my "show" tank that this background is going to go in. I have been thinking about rehoming the Angels anyways as they are getting older and starting to show aggression towards each other. So after I rehome them what type of fish would you get????
Water runs as such GH =10-12 (can't remember exact number) Ph=7.4. I want to stay with small fish. I have even gone as far as thinking of mixing my water with RO water to making it softer.
what did you end up using? foam with sand?
i like the sticks coming out, looks like roots
I toyed around with the idea of making it a RCS and a Dwarf Puffer tank. I dunno though. I would like a big shoal of some type of small fish just don't what? Still trying to figure out the layout of the tank as far as plants dr in my driftwood. and/or rocks in my head. Which is a scary thought! LoL
The puffers would probably find the RCS delicious :P
Can't help with the fish choice unfortunately, but the background looks really nice!
Wow, that's pretty freaking awesome. Looks like it took plenty of work! I'd really like to see what it looks like with fish and plants in it!
John this is so NEAT!!! How do you go about making something like this, even? I can't wait to see it in a planted tank, it's going to be something different, that's for sure!
You know I have soft water, so I'm not really going to be much help with stocking. . . hmmm. . .
have you considered rainbow fish? Or some glass cats would be really cool in a tank like this! Barbs, Dannio, Killifish. . . and of course live-bearers are always an option for a tank with harder-water. . . but I KNOW you really want that Puffer tank - have for some time, right?
Keep us posted, please? I really am excited to see what you do with this one!!!
Yes it took some work and patience! That's for sure. LoL
so THIS is what you do when you're on vacation, eh??? Fantastic! http://i677.photobucket.com/albums/v...f?t=1347237913
