| | Covering blue reef background
About two years ago, my dentist gave me the 30 gallon reef setup from his waiting room. It wasn't in good shape when I got it and was turning into a money pit, so I took it down. It is presently sitting in the basement.
This is one of those setups that has the sump, skimmer, and pump all behind the background. The issue for me is that the background (acrylic I think) is blue. If I set this up again, it will be a freshwater tank with undemanding plants and/or a rift lake tank. I don't care for blue backgrounds and would like to cover it up.
But how? Keep in mind that the blue background is inside the tank. Cork bark? Some kind of non-toxic wall covering? Now that I'm sitting here typing this, I'm just now thinking of a moss wall. Still, there might be something I haven't thought of.
