Question
I have went to many stores and shopped online and only found 1 website that sold backgrounds for an aquarium 30 inches high and 96 inches long and they wanted $220 for a high definition background, any ideas on websites that sell them cheaper. Thanks

Answer
Hey Brian

I found these 3 sites which I'm sure are the ones you visited already...

http://www.drsfostersmith.com/fish-supplies/aquarium-decoration-ornaments/aquari

http://www.petmountain.com/category/70/1/aquarium-backgrounds.html

http://www.deepbluethemes.com/

I'm not aware of any others for a tank that size, but drsfostersmith may be able to custom order one for you for less than $220. I've ordered through their site before. On my 180g, I used simple black wrapping paper because I wanted a dark background with the LED lights to show off the plants and colors in the fish.

Hope this helps you, good luck!

Expertise

I own and maintain several freshwater aquariums from 2 to 180 gallon. I can answer most questions about freshwater aquariums, including setup, cycling, maintenance, compatible tank mates, feeding. Moving? I've moved fish both across town and across the country and can help you get your little aquatic friends to their new home safely. I know and have experience with most freshwater community fish, South American Cichlids and African Cichlids. I don't answer questions about Goldfish or keeping Goldfish with Tropical Fish. I also don't answer questions about keeping crustaceans (shrimp, snails, crabs etc) with Tropical Fish, nor questions about saltwater fish or aquariums. I'm not available to answer questions on weekends, this is when I do maintenance on my own tanks.

Experience

Many years of personal experience with community tank fish, semi-aggressive fish (Barbs, Tetras, etc), Angels, South American Cichlids and African Cichlids.
