    hi guys...

    any ideas on what could be used at the back glass instead of a picture stuck
    as a background ???

    could it be painted black or white or what would be better ????

    perspex will be nice but it is expensive.rather buy the ABS sheeting from Maizeys like mek said, as it will work out way cheaper. a 1.5mX60cm cost me something like R70

    ABS is also easier to cut to size(just cant remeber the thicknessI bought???).you could just use a stanley blade to cut pieces to cover odd places in the tank.
