Drawing for the back of my tank

I got tired of seeing the wires at the back of my tank so I've started this drawing. The central focus is the blue betta that looks like my Blue. I'll be adding several more creatures.

Have you ever considered painting the back of your tank blue or black? It showcases the beauty of the betta especially if its black

Lovely picture! I wouldn't waste it as a background, I'd be putting that on the fridge!!

I agree, navy and black brings all the colors out of gravel, decs, fish, plants. But it's a personal choice. I bet it will still look nice on the tank :)

My betta is such a dark color. I wonder if he'd show up on black or blue. :)

Not going on the fridge. Haha. I'm not 6. :D

I put the pic as is behind the tank. It's cool to see Blue swim by a shark. :)

I think he's intrigued by the different fish. He kept checking the different fish out. :)

I tried to do that, but I am not the most talented artist. At all. I ended up just using my blue wall as the tank back drop.

It looks really neat behind the tank, actually. :) You are a good draw-ler. ;)

6? I'm 26 and I put my drawings up around the house. The freest form of house art! I have a sketch on my fridge that I drew and paintings on my walls. hahah
