Cheap Backgrounds

Post by Micheal on Fri Feb 26, 2010 7:29 pm

I picked up 2 navy blue colored foam boards several months back to use as a background on my 55 gallon tank. I waited a few months to right up the article to see how they would hold up and so far I haven't noticed any wear and tear. I bought them from walmart for about 2.50 apiece. The advantage of them is they are easy to install, no wrinkles and doesn't seem to reflect camera flash.

I use them on a couple of my tanks as well. I have one black, one blue, and a green one that I haven't used yet, but I like to change things around occasionally for a different look.

Its in my walmart's arts and crafts section. Its called foam board if you have to ask for help finding it. I'm sure other places carry it like Hobby Lobby or similar stores.
I understand you completely about spending time on the computer. When I'm at work I surf many different sites but when I'm home this is the only site I spend any time on.

Micheal, I went and did family pics today.

Patty, me, and Grand Babies...lol
I love the kids. I spend lots of time on the computer.
But I take time for the babies.
