I'm looking for a 3D background in Canada Bc. Or a website that ships to Canada at least. It's for a African cichlids tank. I've tried many sites but none ship to Canada anymore. Anyone has any idea where I can find them?

I can't help you with 3d backgrounds but whenever I buy things on Amazon and they don't ship to Canada, I have them ship to a parcel service in Blaine and pick it up from there. Quite often the shipping is free within continental US but very $$$ if they shipped to Canada. I've started using 5d packages in Blaine last year, their rates, hours of operation and service is very good.

Remember to factor in the expense of travel as well as any customs fees/taxes upon one's return to Canada. With these costs in mind, perhaps an alternative to a 3-D background may be more practical all around . . . or construct one oneself. There are several DIY videos on YouTube showing how this can be done.

I was going to suggest the DIY route too. There are a number of excellent videos as was suggested. I have thought about it myself then thought do I want to be looking at that background pretty much forever? The bacgrounds don't seem dynamic. enough for me.

So I opted to aquascaping that allows variety and allows me change things up when ever I want or when I catch a holding female or fry. I got quite inspired by watching Fish2Water videos from New Zealand, I thought they have great ideas.
