The Malawi Rock

 

* ALWAYS USE INTERIOR DIMENSIONS WHEN MEASURING FOR THIS PRODUCT*
We will cut this background to the size you request, PLEASE use the interior dimensions of your tank. We will cut to the nearest 1/8”, please try to be as accurate as possible.

Designed with African Cichlids in mind (though it could be used anywhere!) this is a great addition to any sized tank. With areas ranging from 2" thick to a maximum of 8” on larger backgrounds (and the possibility, if requested all the way up to 14" if you have the space) we can manipulate this mold to fit your needs along with great outcroppings and subtle detail lines this background will make your fish feel like they were back in the lake!

From our FAQ's:

How are they colored?

  • We use a special blend of oxides, sands and crushed rock in the process of coloring our rocks; we don’t use any paints in our process. All of our rocks are hand colored and all of our colors are hand mixed, so colors will vary, while we strive to keep all of our products matching, we cannot guarantee that the rocks we make this week will match 100% to the rocks next week. It is also very hard to show colors depending on the camera it was taken with and the screen you are viewing it on.

End Cap Option: What is, and do you need it?

END CAPS ARE DESIGNED TO PREVENT YOU FROM SEEING BEHIND THE BACKGROUND FROM THE SIDE VIEW OF YOUR TANK. THEY ARE ALSO GREAT FOR SPACE IN PLACING HEATERS ETC BEHIND THE BACKGROUND. THEY DO NOT TAKE OF MORE SPACE OR PROTRUDE ANY FURTHER THAN THE BACKGROUND **CANNOT BE ADDED AFTER THE FACT**
