Do not limit your background design to rocks – rarely are underwater cliffs uniform walls of rock. Often, such walls in the real world include pieces of wood and aquatic plants as well; try to recreate this with your wall. While artificial plants are much easier to incorporate and maintain than live plants, you can carve openings large enough to accept potted plants. This way, if a plant fails to thrive, you can easily trade it out for a new one. Many hobbyists incorporate structures, such as tunnels, small caves or overhangs into their backgrounds, which gives the tank’s décor more depth – just be sure that they are secure, and will not collapse and injure your fish.
