Custom Tank Backgrounds



Well since I have had several people interested in this kind of concrete covered foam background I thought I would see about making some. So after thinking about the best way to do it I have come up with some ideas. I can do both complete backgrounds and I can also sell "rocks", "bricks" and shapes.

Product 1: "Bricks" "Rocks" etc - Shapes would come in LOTS of sizes. And could be siliconed together and to supports to make just about anyshape you can think of. Prices should be in the $5-$50ish range.

Product 2: Special Shapes - This would include faces, temple parts and more complex shapes. These would be used with product 1 to make complete backgrounds. Prices would be in $50-$200+ range depending on size and complexity.

Product 3. Custom Backgrounds - Custom backgrounds would include photoshop mockups and basicly can be anything we can dream up and I can figure out how to carve and or mold. Prices would start at $400 for smaller tanks.

So let me know what you are interested in and any thoughts on pricing etc and if there is any demand I will get going.

Well I have a reef tank so it probably wouldn't work for me right now...I think it is a great idea and will certainly follow your progress!

Sorry didn't mean to cause the confusion. I've thought about doing something similar to a tank but haven't gotten around to trying it....
