April A to Z Challenge – Letter I

Insulation Sheets

Insulation is no longer just for your house.  Many people have experimented with it for backgrounds for tanks and have come up with some very cool backgrounds.  Insulation is easier and not as messy as great stuff, it is very  easy to carve and once covered holds up well.

Here are some photos of one of my favorite tanks by Arielelf on Dendroboard.com

Here is the same tank more grown in:

Here is another tank that used insulation sheets as a background created by Finchfrogs15 on Dendroboard:

Have you ever created a background out of insulation sheets?  How is it holding up?

    1. yeah! The waterfall is awesome! I someday hope to have a waterfall in one of my tanks, but they can require a lot of maintenance and I don’t know that I am ready for that yet.
