New background

Hey everybody, I just finished some new scaping to the tank, and wanted everyone's opinion. I added a new inside the tank background, and some more rock.

I think that that is a good choice of background seeing as it is not too distracting and goes well with the rest of the tank, however your opinion is the most important so if you like it, and think its fine keep it

Type of material? What are you looking to find out, the type of material of your background?

The back is a rubber like material, and the front is a sprayed on texture, that's the best I can describe it. I got it at my LFS, they use one on their 220 gallon display tank. They have had in their tank for over a year with no problems. The neat thing I found with it is that it's only like 3/8 of an inch thick, so I don't loose any tank space, get a background I like, and I don't have to clean the back glass anymore.

Hand blown glass, they just add a little color, and my OB zebra has made it his home. The wife wanted them in there. There used to be a lot more glass in there. I managed to get most of it out, but had to compromise and leave those two. Ahhhh, the things we put up with for love......
