The background for the aquarium plays a huge decorative role. In addition, it helps the light to reflect off the back wall, thereby enhancing the overall illumination in the aquarium.
The background helps not only to hide the objects behind the aquarium (usually it can be not only the wall of the apartment but also the cables and hoses of the aquarium equipment), but also visually make the aquarium “deeper”, add various objects (all that is shown in the background will visually fill your aquarium ) while not cluttering it up.
The easiest and cheapest way to make a background for an aquarium is to paint the back wall with paint. He has the only negative – after painting the background can not be changed without emptying the aquarium.
Currently, manufacturers have greatly expanded the range of manufactured backgrounds, as well as the material from which it is made. One of the options for the background is a film of black, blue or other colors that is easily installed on the back wall with your own hands.
Of these, black film has the most popularity, since such a background distracts attention from the background and concentrates it on bright fish and decorations. To fix the background of the film is very easy and convenient, any suitable adhesives will do.
Since the film is located on the outside of the aquarium, it can be fixed even with tape.
Also among the flat backgrounds there are also with the effect of 3d or stereo-vario, some may like it, and cause irritation in other people, here, as they say, the choice is yours …
For lovers of brighter backgrounds, manufacturers produce a photo film on which a drawing corresponding to a river, sea or other aquarium theme is applied. The choice of these drawings is simply innumerable, therefore, it is easy to choose a photo film for your background for your taste.
For those people who are tired of flat films as a background who want something new and modern, the choice can fall on the bulk panels of foam materials. Of course, such a voluminous background for an aquarium can be done with your own hands, but if you value your time dearly, then you can buy a ready-made high-quality background from reliable manufacturers.
Volumetric backgrounds also have their drawbacks, for example, they are installed inside the aquarium, so your bank will need to be completely free from all content before installation.
The volumetric background is also made from a thin plastic sheet with a volumetric pattern, the price for them is still quite high. Well, everything else after installing a volumetric background in an aquarium will decrease the amount of free space for fish and plants.
