I think that tank is acrylic so it would be a little more permanent than it is for glass tanks

ok nina there are some Idea !
I am going to have to look into some... and some seem a little to hard for me lol!!!!


Jason I want a 3d background to really look like rocks or something so the flat black is not an option but I do have it on 2 of my tanks and I do like it for them...

and I want to make it cost effective




here is the video of it and he only added silicone to the edges so I might be able to get away with some at the top and rocks and sand to hold it at the bottom




and a kiddy pool for a week in the room.... Rock I think that might not fly

I don't ... Nore would I trust my bath lol :sick:


there has to be a way to drain the tank like 85-90%

put the background in ( will have to be in long pieces due to the top of aquarium)

cover bottom in sand 1 inch high and big rocks in the corners (incase it wants to flip out)

Glue the top some how and maybe just run fx5 and turn off the sump :S for a few days ( sump has bubblers so should be ok)

also the top of the tank where it will want to come up to will be sealed shut since the top of arc tanks like this have big thick tops...


humm
