Aquarium Background – How to Choose and Install

Dear colleagues! In today’s article, we will analyze with you how you can give your aquarium an attractive decorative look with the help of one not very difficult manipulation.

If you have ever had an aquarium, then you know firsthand that in order to give it a decorative look, you need to spend energy, especially on the background, the choice of which will be discussed below.

Before you install and run the aquarium, you must determine its future location. It is usually installed near the wall and try to choose a background that is such that its design matches the pattern of wallpaper. To date, a properly selected background for an aquarium is the key to a successful addition to interior design.

The fact is that on a light background, even the most beautiful aquarium inhabitants become faded and inconspicuous.

The easiest and cheapest way to decorate the back wall of a jar is to use self-adhesive films with neutral colors, such as green, blue or black. However, this approach will not always be justified from a decorative point of view.

The main disadvantage of this background is the complexity of redesigning the aquarium. Perhaps the most convenient are the backdrops of PV film made in the form of sheets.

You can buy such jewelry in almost any good pet store. Their landscape and pictures are so diverse that you can easily decorate any jar.

The most popular are films from manufacturers Penn-Plax and Hagen. These backgrounds are glued to the outside of the aquarium on the back wall using ordinary tape.

Only when sticking, be careful, because the background should fit snugly to the back wall of the aquarium and there should be no air bubbles. However, if you planned to make a volumetric background in your aquarium, this way of decorating a can will not work.

You will not achieve the effect of 3D films.

Recently, embossed backgrounds began to appear on the market for aquarium products, with the help of which the aquarist has the opportunity to create an extraordinary flavor to the home underwater garden. However, their cost is much higher than that of conventional film.

But despite their high prices, aquarists like to use these decorations for their aquariums. Volumetric backgrounds are glued to the back wall inside the aquarium with silicone sealant, which is included with the background.

The only drawback of such a back wall is its excessive academicity and stiffness.

Of the huge number of manufacturers of decorations for the aquarium, the best assortment of products has the company Rochepierre. In comparison with the company Juwel, the above company has a better and more varied assortment of backgrounds for the aquarium. Rochepierre backdrops have a huge advantage over Juwel in terms of mounting the “back wall”; you do not need to put it on glue, just press it with stones or aquarium soil.

Thus, an aquarist saves a lot of time, since you don’t have to wait until the sealant dries.

When creating a design in a freshwater aquarium, aquarists often prefer stony-koryazhnym backgrounds or stylized wood bark. Using such rear walls aquarium will fit much better into the interior of your home or office.

The main disadvantage, in my opinion, is a limited number of sizes (60 × 30, 80 × 40, 100 × 40 and 120 × 40 centimeters). It turns out that if the length of your aquarium is more than 120 centimeters, then you will not be able to pick up the background in the catalog of this company, unlike Juwel.

But believe me, it’s better to get an aquarium with the above dimensions and it is possible to buy a high-quality background than to trick with a simple ugly film. All materials and paints that are used in the manufacture of the rear walls are harmless to aquatic inhabitants.

The deep-relief structure of volumetric backgrounds allows you to use in the design of aquariums as stones of various breeds, snags, live and plastic plants. And believe me, when using different decorative elements with volumetric backgrounds, it does not impair the perception integrity of the interior of your biotope.

There are voluminous backgrounds that resemble the habitat of aquarium fish from Central, South America or Southeast Asia. That is, your fish will be even more comfortable to live in captivity.
