Aquarium Backgrounds

I was curious what people thought of some of my ideas for aquarium backgrounds.
I was motivated to make some backgrounds for aquariums based on an interest in aquascaping. I perfer natural backgrounds and colours that enhance the natural beauty in a tank. So I took some of my own images from various wanderings, holidays, and interests and created a few backgrounds which I intend to print and try out. I may make the prints available for sale at some point.

The following are based on stone, water or colour gradients.
The first is labradorite stone.

The second is based on water images to compliment fresh or marine scaping.

The third were inspire by photographer and artist Amano Takashi, best known for his beautiful aquascaping. I love the white and gradient backgrounds used in his work as well as others. I tried to create something similar in these.

I would be happy to send high resolution images to anyone wanting to use them. I can adjust the image size to the dimensions of your tank and check if the resolution will work for your size tank. Just send me a PM.

This way, you can get them printed and laminated yourself at a local printer and not worry about shipping.

Some images will work better than others for larger tanks.
