I have spent most of the morning trying to find that background for a 5' 120. Doesn't look like it exists...any who, I like the darker gravel.

Was it the natural looking stuff or just black? My friend has the natural and it looks really good. I know some of the coated color stuff can have issues.

I used an Estes product in the past and was unhappy. It was a natural product but they ran it in a machine that used neon colors so it had others colors mixed in, very distracting! My friends Nat geo. is slightly bigger than my Peace River, I would say 3mm while Peace River is 1-2mm

I don't mind natural looking backgrounds that resemble a proper aquatic environments. However, I do find those Greek Coliseum backgrounds rather silly. It's like sunken galleons, castles, skulls, They are for me the epitome of cheese. But hey, lots of people like stuff like that and if it makes them happy then who is anyone to tell them they shouldn't be doing it?

I may not always be right, but I am always the BOSS :-)

I prefer a natural background myself, but if a tacky picture helps someone keep their tank up then I say go for it. ;)
