Background selection – “From plane to volume”

Those people who have encountered at least once with the arrangement of the home pond, know how much you need to spend strength to give it a decorative look. First of all, it concerns background selection.

This is what this article will be about.

Let’s start with the place where the aquarium will be installed. Often it is located along the wall, while its owners forget that the pattern of wallpaper does not always correspond to the interior of the aquarium, and if the wallpaper is generally light, then even the most brightly colored fish becomes ugly and faded.

In modern aquarium design, for this reason, the method of designing the rear aquarium wall is of paramount importance.
Cheaper and simpler way is to recognize the staining in neutral dark colors of the rear aquarium wall – dark green, blue or black. But this approach is not always justified in terms of decoration.

In addition, this method makes the re-registration of the aquarium time-consuming and difficult.
Leaf backgrounds made of PVC film are more beautiful and comfortable, which can currently be bought at almost any pet store. They are very diverse both in the nature of the landscape and in the genre (freshwater, marine, monochromatic). The most famous are background films of such forms as Hagen and Penn-Plax.

This background is mainly glued to the outside of the aquarium side with adhesive tape. The film should fit snugly against the wall, otherwise bubbles will appear that reduce the decorative effect.
Both ways of decorating the back of the aquarium wall have one fundamental drawback – with the help of them it is very difficult to give the back wall a volume that emphasizes the perspective and makes the aquarium more original.

In the market for products for aquariums, embossed backgrounds have recently appeared that give a unique flavor to a homely reservoir. Despite the fact that their cost is quite high, they still enjoy great popularity among aquarists.

Inside the aquarium, the background is strengthened with silicone glue attached in the package. The disadvantages of such a “back wall” include excessive stiffness and academicity.

The company Rochepierre, a well-known manufacturer of decorative aquarium decoration, presents the widest range of structural facings for the rear aquarium walls. Unlike the company Juwel, the products of this company are distinguished by a huge variety of thematic and color solutions. In addition, they are much thicker – 2-3 centimeters.

But when using such backgrounds there is no need to glue them to the back wall, and it will be enough just to press them with a layer of soil, a snag or a stone, which is very convenient and also saves time. When making home freshwater reservoirs, the greatest popularity belongs to decorations imitating stylized bark or stony-koryazhny underwater landscape.

Elegant colors in the best way allows you to enter the aquarium in the interior of the office or apartment. The dimensions are strictly fixed (120×40, 100×40, 80×40, 60×30 cm), do not allow to use them for decoration of aquariums, the length of which is more than 120 centimeters, and the height is more than 50 cm. Their cost is slightly higher than the decorations of the company Juwel (set costs 30-40 $), which compensates for a higher decorative effect.

It is also worth noting that paints and polymeric materials that are used in the manufacture, are non-toxic to the inhabitants of the aquarium.

Due to the deep-relief texture of the panel, it is possible to create compositions without adding special design tricks, adding to the landscape such design elements as natural and artificial plants, stones, and snags, while achieving the maximum stereoscopic effect. It is worth noting that in this case both large design elements (large stones and mangrove snags) and tracery light roots and branches of juniper and black alder are used.

The integrity of the perception of underwater landscapes while not suffering. With the help of such decorations one can easily create an interior of both a specific biotype (South or Central America, Southeast Asia), and the usual species aquarium, which does not pretend to the geographical accuracy of underwater landscapes.

So the use of embossed backgrounds allows fans to create an inexpensive and beautiful freshwater aquarium.
