If I had the money or was at all DIY inclined I would totally have the 3d background on my cichlid tank. I love them. You have a picture of yours? Did you buy it or make it yourself?

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

I'm actually not sure if the news story I read was legit or not. Since I can't read Swedish it was difficult to try and verify. I did find it mentioned in two sources, was about a year or two ago, but when I tried to find the articles again recently I was unable.

My theory was that fish will be afraid of what might attack them through the glass, but a solid background gives them a visually safe place they know they can't be attacked from.

I've noticed all my holding females usually tend to hang out near the black background. Same thing with my fry tank. Guess there may be something to that after all, just never really gave it that much thought. lol
