The Malawi Rock


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!



Classic Brown: This color is our most popular with browns, blacks, yellows and some tans it really gives off that natural look!

Classic Grey: This is a wonderful color with grey tones, a little black and some white making this very versatile!

Castle Rock Grey: Brand new and fantastic, with classic grey base and tans and whites added this is sure to create focus!

Outback Sunset: With a classic brown base and some added reds and brighter tons this is sure to pop!

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

In short, end caps finish off or block the view of the gap you would see looking down the length of your aquarium. (See pictures) Our backgrounds are cut from larger molds, therefore when we make them the edges are exposed allowing you to see behind the background. The end caps are permanently attached, as one piece, to your background on the side(s) you choose, completing the look of your tank stopping you from seeing behind the background from the side. End caps make no visible difference when you view your background from the front.



If your tank is in a wall you wouldn't need any end caps because you couldn't see behind the background anyway. If your tank was in a corner you may only need one end cap on the side of the tank that is exposed.
