    That must look like heaven to those Paracyps. They love those rock surfaces. I think you really nailed the appearance of real rock. The overall design is a bit square for my tastes but it's very functional and I can see why you did it. I believe you said on FB that you were willing to make these for people...? It's Crystal right?

Just pm me with details and we ca go from there. Me an my wife kinda hit a hard spot with us just having a baby so im trying to make some extra cash. Also wanting to stat my own business making backgrounds and stuff.

    $1 per gallon seems like a good deal. And just to clarify, you said these were styro and drylok. The thing that holds me back from that is you have to have an empty dry tank and glue the background in, correct? I wish somebody would make an affordable polyresin background that could be placed into an existing tank. Polyresin ain't cheap though from what I've seen.
    Regardless, I'd love to have a background from you but can't afford it right now. Will keep it mind.
