Fish tank background, any preferences?

Post by Wormie » Sat Oct 26, 2013 8:16 pm

Anyone have a preferred background poster when using on a indoor tank swimming area, I want my turtles to really show up underwater, I have a large pebble substrate base and the 280 litre tank is just for swimming and it has a over top box for basking, I'm not keen on the standard underwater typical scenery posters as I think they may be too busy to compliment my yellow bellies ~trttle ~trttle Anyone any advice?

A plain dark blue or black will really show them up and basically turn the back of the tank into a mirror to give them another terrapin to "play" with ;)

I have quite a naturalistic river scene..large pebbles, and plenty of clear blue water!
