where would be the best spot to hit up to get a backround for my 5foot 120g, nothing overly expensive. im looking into getting a rock'ish scenery for the back of my african tank. but i would like to hear your experiences on where is the cheapest, who has some nice backrounds. i thought about painting black or even putting a black backround but i feel i need something more exciting..

Island Pets have a nice selection and you pay by the foot. We payed $25 for 4ftx24" for a rock background. It's very nice and has a 3D appearance.

@donjaun, im tempted to go black for a clean simple look.. but i want to see if i like a scenic backround first, i would just save it, if your like any of use your gonna change, get new tanks and you wont have to get some more :D

Wow. $25 for a sheet of background. I had that come with a used tank. I also spent $25 at Landscape Supply Centre for some nice flat rocks to stack up as a rock wall at the back to provide tons caves for my 25+ cichilids in a 90 Gallon.

i'd like to see how that turned out... any pics? thinking of doing something similar, or a DIY 3D bg

I want to do a real rock background. Our new tank will have a black painted background and we are considering doing a rad cave feature.

Gklaw, i know what tank you are talking about lol!! Now that i've painted a tank, i'll only do that for the rest of time, the texture makes everything stand out in the tank. Looks amazing!!
