I have known many aquarium hobbyist who have experimented with a wide variety of fish tank back grounds.
There are tons of options on the market from model diorama taken from actual aquascapes in nature.
As hard as they try, I find these tank backgrounds to be way to busy and artificial looking and totally detract from the beauty of your fish. As a rule of thumb, the lighter colored trash bags will reflect more light and will be better for growing aquatic plants.
The dark bags will absorb more light, giving the tank a more deep water look and make the fish feel more comfortable.


I find the dark colors work best for most fish, but white looks really great for saltwater marine tanks, especially once algae and other micro organisms populate the glass. The air pockets, folds and wrinkles will create depth as the algae grows on the back wall of your tank. I put some transluscent blue paper that is generally used to stuff gift bags,I found a couple of rolls in blue, and lightly affixed to my 40 gallon betta tank (1 male two females).

At some point in the fish aquarium hobby you may realize that you can build a better aquarium filter for less money than it would cost you to buy one from your local fish store.

Even though the bags are waterproof, you shouldn’t put them in your tank just in case they have been treated with bactericide or anti-rot agents.
