Nah, it's an aquarium background that is black on one side and dark blue on the other (reversible) it is the same stuff that the printed aquarium backgrounds are made of, you just have to sticky tape it to the back of the aquarium, nothing fancy..

And finally, our 80g brackish water tank after the re-model. 3M black color quartz T grade for substrate, burlap material for background.


I'll stop adding pics now.

We put a lot of work into that one. It originally had black sand but we took it out thinking it was the root of our pH issues. When we changed to the Eco/3M mix, we found it wasn't the problem. Now we run CO2 for the plants and our pH stays steady at 6.5 even with a water change.
