 Hi,
 Is  this  a  good  idea?   Idea   Sticking  the  frost  film  as  the  tank  background.  This  film  will  give  the  etched  glass  look  (similar  to  ADA  etched  nano  tank).

 I  have  seen  couple  of  planted  tanks  with  the  frost  film  stuck  as  the  background  and  it  looks  good.

 I  believe  different  effects  can  also  be  created  with  mild  lighting  behind  the  tank!

 The  film  is  avilable  with  the  guys  who  stick  the  sun  protection  stickers  for  cars,  showrooms  etc.

 Hi,
 
 As  Prem  has  mentioned,  we  do  get  this  from  the  glass  shops  and  where  they  sell  the  stickers.  One  off  my  friend  has  found  a  shop  near  to  Shivajinagar  (I  got  the  address  with  me..  Will  go  to  the  shop  to  find  out  how  the  stuff  is).  
 
 They  charge  per  sq  feet.  It  ranges  between  a  century  and  double  century!!!!.  Based  on  the  thickness  of  the  film  and  quality,  the  price  increases....

 Ooh,  I  have  been  looking  for  this  for  a  while.  So  the  car  sunfilm  wallahs  will  ahve  this  ?  I  did  think  of  asking  them  but  then  thought  that  they  wouldnt  have  it  since  no  one  puts  it  on  cars,  might  be  illegal.  Anyone  know  a  place  in  mumbai  ?

 I  think  some  of  the  car  part  shops  near  Milan  Subway  (Santacruz)  should  have  them..  They  normally  have  different  car  tints...

 i  got  mine  from  JC  road,  Bangalore.  secondly  you  cannot  stick  it  as  bubbles  will  form  under  the  surface  of  the  sticker.  you  need  professional  help/more  precision  to  ensure  that  the  bubbles  are  not  trapped  under  the  sticker.  i  use  cellotape  to  just  stick  it  behind  my  aquarium.  the  film  was  too  thin  so  i  doubled  it.  
 
 i  am  attaching  the  pic  of  before  the  background  and  after  putting  it.  i  like  the  look  after  putting  the  background  Very Happy

 Cool  will  take  a  look  around  Milan  subway.  Any  idea  what  it  is  called  other  than  frost  film  ?  What  application  would  they  use  it  for  since  it  would  not  make  a  good  tint  for  cars  ?

 apparently  people  use  this  for  their  cars.  however  for  aquariums  it  does  a  magnificent  job  by  reflecting  the  light  and  the  background  appears  bright.  people  have  used  other  lights  behind  the  tank  to  get  a  more  infinite  feel  to  the  depth  of  the  tank.  
 overall  this  would  be  one  of  the  best  things  to  put  into  a  planted  tank  as  a  background  which  i  have  ever  tried.
