    Default 29g 3d Background for my Nephew

    Back before Christmas I promised my nephew I would do him a 3D background for his 29g tank, so started working on that tonight. He had a single yellow lab in the tank for about 7 years which just died a few months back. It was huge too, had to be at least 6" or more when it finally died. Once done it will be home to a trio of yellow labs I'm giving him from a batch from one of my fish that are about 7 months old now.

    Carving all done in this pic


    And drylok applied here. Will be shading it tomorrow and then sealing it for him.

    Wow nice work! Does it fit snug or if there were fry would they get behind it in the tank?

    Thanks guys. And yep it fits snug. What I do is to cut it to siz and fit it in the tank before I start carving it so it fits good. Then if there are any gaps at all they are easily filled with a dab of GE silicone I* if need be.

    Got it set up and fish in for him. He'll add some more rock later I'm sure. Gave him four labs and an albino BNP.
