Really a great idea. Tomorrow morning I check
Some more playing with light. Not only with backlighting but with different above light sources also.
My 6lit nano:
Hi Biobio, Love the lighting ideas Your Nano
Each of Aquascapes have a different appeal about them, it goes to show with a little thought you can change your Aquascape from good to excellent.
Addition to this topic. My new RGB LED backlight (adjustable with remote control) behind my 3 Juwel RIO240 tanks.
I thought I should bring the back lighting up again I think it will assist newer members using back lighting.
Its easy to see how different lighting on the same Aquascape can make a big difference.
you guys are amazing in lighting!!!!
Its just a matter of keep trying, taking plenty of photos and notes how it was done.
I suggest you start by doing some research on Aquarium back lighting.
What are your ideas on back lighting or special lighting effects.
@biobio hit it on the head pretty well. Gels have been used in the photo/film world for quite a while for background effect, hair lighting, and atmosphere. Works well in this application for sure. It's use can easily be overdone though. Subtlety is key here. Don't fall into the trap of "oh cool look at this" and completely over-do it. Keep it minimal and tie it into the over-all effect as a compliment, not a focal point.
Thank you for posting that interesting and helpful information.
Love the back lighting effect - so cool
When the correct back lighting is used it can make it that you want to keep looking into that Aquascape.
Some more extreme lighting...
Typical and a bit boring 25lit nano
And "burned" from above with 20W RGB LED garden spotlight.
The lighting effects could be endless if you starting mixing the colours.
What is that red guppy strain called?

Midnight transformation caused by lighting: man into a werewolf or a princess into Cinderella or Anubia nana into Buchepalandra...
Fish can appare and be vibrant colored or disappear and be camouflaged (depending on it coloration and light color above tank).
