DIY 3D background

Postby raj_81 » Sat Mar 05, 2016 6:58 pm

Hi All,

After coming to know my colleagues brother collection of fishes I got more interest on aquarium fishes (earlier I know only few species that can be kept in our fish tank like gold fish, angel fish, guppies, sucker fish..). After this I made few online searches and ended up at under water sand fall. I wanted it to be in my tank and tried to watch as many online videos as I can, during this time I also found the 3D background. My interests are added on this as well.

Atlast I have decided to make 3D background and underwater sandfall.

While looking on other videos I got another DIY idea to create fish tank table (floating fish tank on another tank), just leaving the idea here for anyone in this idea to implement, due to the budget constraint I am not starting up this project at this time..

I ended up that day to let the cement to dry, I had a strong feeling it is not going to be a successful coat as it was too water..

As thought I ended like this.. when I tried to brush it to remove the dust on top of it I see the cement also getting removed without applying any force..
