It looks great. Amazing how the sand pulls it all together.

Really nice looking background! I looked at some from a different company at Seamax a couple of weekends ago and am very tempted to try one.

Which BG is that? It would go really well with the rocks I already have in my 90.

Whenever we get ready to re-do the living room floor, the 90 gallon show tank will
be taken down for the first time in 10 years. It was a custom made acrylic tank made
to fit the mahogany frame that came from the Phillipines. I am going to have the
scratches buffed out, and really thinking about a background like that, that would hide all in and out-flow pipes.
And a question for Mike, do the trophs dig much?

Hi,
Mine do not dig at all , just graze and swim back and forth and chase one another

If you go with a background look at design by nature they are really great to work with

Mike trophs are in the tank, Ill be posting pics later when they settle in a bit
