What background have you got?

What background have you got and what do you think of it?

I have black on all of my tanks. I find it best for photography and also it just suits my rooms.

Solid black. Painted with blackboard paint (and what a pain that was!).

It shows the colours of the fish nicely, although its a good job Acei Ngara have white tails or I'd lose them! :laughing-rolling:

Mines a rock background a green colour it matches all the algae on my rock work and has fooled people that it is a 3d background.

i have the majority of my tanks with a blue background and i find this the better colour for a general look to the tank however two of my tanks have black backgrounds and two more have a rock effect vinyl stick on the back of the tank they have a 3d effect and look pretty good in the photos :handgestures-thumbup:

I have one of those backgrounds on my community tank - rocks and plants etc... but I suppose I'll be changing it now I'm converting that tank to Malawis. I've still got loads of blackboard paint left. :handgestures-thumbup:

Posh git lol. I have known people to use bathroom paint for the bottom and back of tanks in shops. Comes off over time but for normal wear it stays put.

I'm surprised that blue is much more popular than black. On other forums where they have asked this same question black usually comes out on top.

Blue always reminds me of shop tanks.... but that posh 'Teal Blue' sounds nice.... :handgestures-thumbup:
