Very impressive background dobbin. Thanks for sharing all the photos and video. that's a huge tank too. The Oscars have lots of room. Do you happen to have any photos of the build process?

Thank you.
unfortunately i lost the oscars and a lot of other fish when my tank broke in December.This was due to falling rocks that cracked the bottom of the tank.that is why i built the background once i got the new tank.i will upload some pics when i get a bit more time.

ah, sorry to hear of the falling rock accident. I've had tanks full of natural rock too and was always a bit worried when moving rock around. Your experience was a pretty good reason for moving to a DIY background, especially considering the size of your tank.

yes a cracked tank is every ones nightmare. best part of 80 gallons across the floor before i saw it. The loss of fish i had for quite a few years was the worst though,

sure when you raise them it's even harder when they're lost. Well again, the new tank looks great.
