Here is a model from another product line. This is the back flush line - with caves. The design is created to perfectly fit tanks around 75 gallons. This one is in a limestone finish.

An important aspect of our designs is that cave openings and hiding spots are specifically made large enough for the type of fish in 75+ aquariums. I'm sure many of you have tried to find a cave your 6" tall angelfish can hide in or swim through. This product line meets that need as well.

Tell us what do you think! Do you love the design, how could we improve on it, our do you not like it at all?

Very nice.

A reminder, 75 gallon framed tanks have a top support bar in the middle of the tank ie: my 75g tank has two opening of ~22" x 17".

I prefer tanks with 18" depth so you can move hardscape away from the back wall and more in the middle. The fish have room to swim around the hardscape. I do not like the rock background on the market, they have a 2d look to them ie: no depth.

Mark. Thanks for great pointer. I know that the XLarge (75+ gallon) models of our product can all be inserted sideways laid flat and then stood up, within the space on each side of the support bar.

We also do not like the 3d background solutions on the market. They are actually made of the same foam type product that are used in life preservers. We made a decision not to go down that route. Having said that, this model is designed to go completely flush. We have 3 other product lines that are specifically designed for the middle of tank. I'm going to post one this week. Take a look and let me know what you think.

So are you saying this doesn't look like real rock?
I think it looks like real rock I just think it looks like it has been put this way , it doesnā€™t look like I naturally fell into place to me it looks like a human has put it this way , I like it thought and would maybe look more natural onceā€™s finished with the substrate and plants

Hi
It looks too even.
Maybe fiddle with extending one of the longer sides.
Also, maybe rotate one of the longer elements so it looks deeper rather than flat like the other side.

Sorry just came back on the forum so maybe this is way late for input.

You could do what some artists do and drop stuff on the floor. Seriously, there is beauty to be found in the accidental, the random, the chaotic.

In the main introduction thread to these pieces of decor it was stated that they are man-made.

We then mix a polyester resin with real rock particles, and cast a product which is Ph Neutral and Non-Toxic.


The images are just the basic shape not the finished product.
