Aquarium Backgrounds

Hey guys,

Anyone in the Sydney area know somewhere good to buy these?
I've got a 4x2x2 and i want one of the 3d backgrounds to cover the cables and tubes etc.

I've called a couple of places and they're looking at $250 approx.

Anyone know anywhere cheaper?

Esra

Just curious, are you looking for a background to insert inside the tank or external? I had posted a link to the pangea line of backgrounds a month or so ago(in this section, I think), but they are in the UK, I believe, and are VERY expensive.

If you can't find the 3D background you desire, the photo backgrounds can look reasonably good. Here is the one I just attached to my tank. (However, the soapy water doesn't appear to be holding it flush to the tank for more than a week or so, and I am going to try the vegetable oil route next, I think.)



Regards,

Gary
