Nice fish tank/ salt water or fresh.? I like the background. I can't find a light background like yours. Ours are always dark. I have to devote some serious time back into our 55 gal. When our newf had her litter it took all of our spare attention and the fish got taken care of but that was about it.I like to sit at night and watch the fish swim its calming after a stressed out day.
It is a fresh water tank. All that is in there is our Beta, TaiPei. We may add a snail but that is it. The background is one I made. I took one image and printed it out(left), and then reversed it and printed it(right) and then cut that image in half, mirrored it, added them together, blended the two images together and printed that(middle), then I took them all and taped them together(making sure all the trees matched) and cut it to size and taped it to the back of the tank. It was printed on satin photo paper it make it not seem dull. Thanks for the compliments!
The trick to getting great lighting in a fish tank like the ones you see in magazines and such is to use a double bulb strip light. If you havea 29 gallon tank, you especially get shafted, because where a 10 gallon tank which is about20 inches long has a 20 inch bulb, a 29 gallon tank is 30 inches long, but the standard strip light has a 24 inch bulb. It just isn't enough light. The next largest size bulb is 32 inches, which is too long to fit into the light fixtures for those tanks. I broke down and bought a double bulb (2 x 24 inch bulbs) strip light for about $55 a few years ago and am *sooo* glad I did. THe amount of lighting difference in our 29 gallon tank is incredible, and it really helps make the plants grow if you use live plants and not plastic.
hmmm plants i remember haveing those in my tank they are green right?? My south american cichlid tank had them a few kribs, some rams, and cockatoos, i miss it, peat filtered water, ahh the good old days.LOL
Now I have african cichlids so no plants, im lucky if I don't have all my gravel in just one pile at the end of the day,LOL.
Thanks Katz. A pond was much harder than I thought it would be, but I love it.. Mine is a little over 1,000 gallons and keeps me busy. It took us two summers to build it. We did the lower side one summer (2 feet deep) and then the next summer did the other side (which is 4 ft deep).
