Yes

We have done a sandstone for my buddies South American Tank....He loves it, but I prefer the Black to mimic the night sky (With moonlamps, the white specks have a starlight effect)

Nuth -

The black w/specks spray looks awesome.  Have you tried other colors?

The vasoline was a huge mess, and couldn't get all the air bubbles out.  I do not recommend that way!!!

Petsmart sells the all black background.  I might just go buy that and try the vasoline trick to put it on the back.

So Cich is right........

Paint an external Background and replace what was there, if your tank is up and running......

if ur tank is already setup u could always paint onto a poster board or a bed sheet and cut it to size.

just like i am doing.


and if u f up, u dont have to bust out a razor blade

girl picked up at bar:  oh wow u have alot of fishies in here, arent they supposed to be gold, like goldfish...  why arent these ones gold, oh that one is so ugly, why would u have more than one tank....  (she carried on for about 10 mins).

me:  please get out of my house.

Think I could spray that stuff on one of the plastic backgrounds and then attach it?  Since my tank is already filled, I was just going to remove my current background and spray it on there, then put it back up.  Think that would work?
