Fish aquarium backgrounds have been around for years and come in different materials: vinyl roll, acrylic paint, “live” wall (i.e. planted moss) and carved silicone material. Tridimensional (3D) backgrounds are usually molded out of 100% silicone and other fish- and shrimp- safe materials and crushed rocks.
