Re: Backgrounds

Re backgrounds

For years now local aquarists here in Brisbane have been making custom made
backgrounds from styrofoam sheets of varying thicknesses sculptured with an
electric soldering iron and painted with black emastak bituminous paint and
various coatings added before drying - e.g. powdered peat moss and various
sands and gravels.
The sheets are then silasticed to the inside of the tank and look good -
various "epiphytic" plants like Microsorium. Bolbitis and Anubias grow well
on these.
