My new swirl - Aquarium77-MC

Here's the results of this week's project. (see, I've finally run out of guitar projects...)

I got pretty fired up when the person at the pet store said I could pick out any 4 bags of gravel I wanted. And I'm sure she thought I was on total crack when I returned with black, neon pink, neon yellow, and neon green. I really did try to make a swirl pattern with the gravel, but after a while I just said "screw it" and mixed all the colors up. At least it's an even color distribution...

There are actually fish in the aquarium, but they never come out because the colors are too bright. They're probably blind by now.

Maybe this should've gone in the misc. thread, so if I get any grief I'll take another picture with my UV77MC in the background...

Actually you could get matching MC'ed fish for the tank...I remember when I was keeping fish, the guy who worked at the store told me about these transparent fish which coloured dyes of your choice could be injected into the fish...

Pretty cool. Without the Dyes...imagine JSCP fish!

Nice aquarium!

If you really want the swirl look blow up a picture of a swirl, print it on gloss paper and stick it on the back like one of those photo backrounds.Plus it might scare your fish to the front on the tank.:biggrin:

:rotf: I can see why. No wonder your fish have become recluse. :biggrin:

Seriously though… Those are great colors for an aquarium.

I could do a custom swirl on poster board for you to put in the backround . I've done it before but for my iguanas
they always had big ass eyes , I *guess I know why though .just drop me a line and a size that would work
and I'll see what I can do .
