Thanks....First of all I tried frosted film but it was a right pain trying to apply it straight and without air bubbles....so I just cut a piece of opaque plastic sheet to size and clipped it on to the back of the tank....just need to get a small LED spotlight now and aI'm it at the back from the outside to give a 'sunshine' effectThat is so cool, I love it!
How did you do it? I've been thinking about doing a dyI background for my tanks, I'm not fond of the store ones.
That's a brilliant suggestion Bandit.....I've added a blue LED behind the screen now.I like it with the background better.
You could even use a night light[ lunar blue] behind it in the evening.
Holy mother of.... pictures a scape resembling a lot of rocks with the plants on a higher shelf so it looks like a cliff with a beach below it. The misted glass with the blue led looks like a sun poking through a heavy fog... sorry, got super excited about this for some reason. Its like someone just opened a third dimension to aquascaping.
If you and your little ones were closer I would ask you if I could photograph them. You have done brilliantly with this. I just painted the two wall sides of the 150 black. I think I will try this with an aquarium in the future.Thanks Bandit & Wraithen......now if only I had a proper camera
I have found (as in most forms of artistic expression) true innovation such as the combination of the ideas from you and coralbandit to be a rare and unique thing. I would guess you have opened up a whole new wing in aqua scaping. Well done.Thank you Thunder,.......it helps if the opaque plastic sheet backs on to a window. The blue nightlight feature as suggested by Bandit looks stunning when I close the curtains....its just a pity that my iPhone camera lens won't let enough light in to capture it.
I have some business to attend to in the States next year, perhaps we can meet up for some 'inspiration'...pity you don't live in Colorado or California....or even Canada
Literally just watched that video. It was aquapros. I like the single beam poking through the frosted glass better though. Now I'm wondering what spray frost would look like on a clear piece of vinyl used as a background with a light.I watched a guy on youtube Aquapros I think and he did a really nice backlight with a cheap LED Strip, it looked lovely! I really like yours though, it makes the fish really stand out!
