Default AQUATERRA BACKGROUND vs. CORK BARK

Has anyone tried any of the "AquaTerra" Backgrounds from this Dendroboard Sponsor?


http://www.aquaterra-intl.com/

I was considering the "RainForest" Background for my 55g. It's a toss up between that and "Cork Bark".

I've never seen the backgrounds in person so I don't know how realistic they look; or how well it looks in a dart viv. Any idea?

Does this bgd. interfere with false bottom; i.e, to tall for false bottom so doesn't fit in tank, etc.

Does anyone know what the cost for this background is; is it rediculously expensive? I noticed there are no prices on the website; this is usually an indicator of considerably "high" prices.

Q,
I considered trying one of those, but they are expensive!
Also they only come in predetermined sizes, which means you would have to cut the background if you were to use the false bottom technique. If you really like them, and don`t want to spend a ton of money on one then have to cut it up, to make a false bottom setup, you could always use a leca (light expanded clay aggregate), or hydroton bottom, with landscape fabric over it for a bottom. Do a search on leca in this forum and you should find some threads on how this is done.
Good luck!

Q,
I just ordered that exact background for a 55 of mine. It's not here yet, but feel free to PM me for details.
