Aquatic Ecosystems Backgrounds


Hey guys;

I found a rock-background, it appears to be black, over at Aquatic Eco Systemes.

Here is the URL:

http://www.aquaticeco.com/index.cfm/.../6672/cid/2870

And a picture:


They come in size 24"x18". Each package (only $16.50) includes two things, so one package would be good for a standard 48" tank (actual inside dimensions 47.5" long x 19" tall etc).

Has anyone ever fooled around with this before? It's cheap enough to experiment with. Is it hard to the touch? It says its made from polyon foam, so I'm assuming its the same type of stuff most people here make their rock backgrounds from? It would actually be cheaper for me to order this thing and have it shipped than it would for me to buy the stuff myself.

Anyways, I was just curious if you guys had ever messed with it before?

Thank you!

You know, judging from the picture, it does NOT look very natural. But that might be different once it is inside the tank, and perhaps some algae grows over it.

If you try it out, post some pics for us to admire!
