I dare you to flare

This weekend Michael my baby boy was upgraded from his hospital tank to a planted 10g



As some of you know he hates the color black (although he seems to b ok with black sponge filters...). As a test I painted a sheet of window laminate black and stuck that on the back of his tank (I reaaaaaly wanted a black background... ITS JUST SO PRETTY)

Low and behold... he hated it... "MOM what is this abomination!?!?"

I have him a day to reallly make sure he hated it. He did :<

So pealed it off and stuck a frosted laminate on the back of the tank.



I still really want a black ish background. If anyone has any ideas of how to make this happen PLEASE give me a shout!

Much appreciated!!!

What about a brown color instead? It'll tie in nicely with the natural theme, and he might not want to kill it... Lol

Yes... :<
He immediately swam over to it and showed it that he was the boss. (He flared at it for a good 10 min) then I removed it...

Although good news the double layer background doesn't seem to invoke his wrath!

maybe he can see his reflection from that black background,
you can close window or something can change light direction to avoid mirror effect,
sorry may bad language.
