Good idea. 1/4" painted plywood may be the easiest,
I do black and black on all my tanks. Brings out the color of the fish and plants
Thanks Karen. It's a bad picture. Looks way better in person
I personally like black, or dark blue. Since you are going to paint the background on the tank, how about going from black on the bottom, gradually fading into light blue at the very top.
If I were you, I would think twice about painting the tank just in case you may want to change backgrounds in the future. I've heard of people using Plasti-dip which peels off in case you don't like it.
Sorry...8 forgot to answer the question. I would go with black.
I prefer a paler blue like the Caribbean. I think that would look really nice with the white sand. It would look more tropical. Alison
I did both blue and black tape on backgrounds for my smaller tank before we set up our 125. After having done both, we painted the big tank black. We really like it too. It'll never go out of style either!
*We used plastI dip paint. Turned out amazing!
Ooh that's a really nice color! What color is it?!? I really like it
