These are for pre-made backgrounds that already come painted and sculpted.305phins;4856827; said:Couple ?s what kinda foam is it and can i get it at like home depot? Next what paint do you use that doesnt leach into the water and is safe for the fish. Last how do you carve such amazing look alikes of rock so nice! Appreciate it MFK
Now I'm curious how you did the plumbing for that tank. I can only assume you ran the plumbing in front of the background, leaving a bit of dead space behind the background. Any reason for this? Why not fill the back with water as well? Now the background has some actual pressure against it. The weight of the water in front of it, trying to push back. Don't you think that over time, the water will win that battle? Just curious. Would you care to explain your strategy/project if you can. Very interested to learn about these different strategies.KTrain;5054801; said:I installed a large background in my 150 a few months ago. To prevent fish and water from getting behind it I used an expanding pond foam to fill the void. The foam worked really well. I want to do a write up / how-to on it eventually to show other people. Water doesn't get behind it as long as you know how to engineer the foam.
You can find the foam at most improvement stores such as the Depot or Lowe's.
