Amazon Rainforest 3D Background is our current best-seller thanks to its amazing detail.
The "roots" of the tree extend up to 16" into the aquarium (from back to the front). That is the minimum width of the aquarium required to fit it in, without any cutting.
3D backgrounds offered by Modern Aquarium are made of the finest materials, providing unrivaled quality and safety for all inhabitants.
Please keep in mind that this background is custom made in USA, just for you and therefore takes about 2-3 weeks to manufacture.
Sizing: When ordering a Standard Size, listed in drop down menu, we will cut the background 0.5" smaller in length and heigth to accomodate for thickness of the glass and to make it look better. If this does not meet your needs, please order a custom size by reaching out to us and one will be made to your exact specifications.
My aquarium size is not available as an option, does that mean it will be more expensive to have it custom made?
No! Our cost is based on square footage of the 3D Background area and nothing else, so if you wish to have a custom 3D background made for you, please use our Contact Us form or call us at 917-231-5956 to provide your aquarium dimensions and we will make it for you.
Alternatively you may purchase one of the sizes listed and cut it to size.
Are your 3D Backgrounds safe for my fish?
All backgrounds are 100% neutral to all environments and are completely safe.
How should I secure the background in my aquarium?
While it certainly can be permanently siliconed to the aquarium glass, this background sinks on its own, allowing for optional installation on "running" aquariums using special Mountig Clips, essentially eliminating the need to empty and dry the entire tank just to have it intstalled.
When using the Mounting Clips method, we suggest you drain 50-75% of your aquarium (large water change) which will make the installation much easier. Shift as much substrate as you can away from the back glass, making space for your new background. Place the background into the desired position and shift the substrate back against the new background. After placing your background into its final position use the Mounting Clips to secure it on top of the aquarium.
The mounting clips on top, the substrate on the bottom and sheer pressure of the aquarium water will keep the background in its place.
