The illusion of depth

The aquarium is built behind a wall. The dimensions is 200 x 180 x 70 cm of 2600 liters. 25 modules are used in this tank, including a Module B at the left side serving as an overflow to the tank sump which is located underneath the tank. Besides Modules the aquarium is decorated with rocks from Tenerife and Italy. The fish is from the african lake of Malawi.

This aquarium is very deep. But it illustrates a perfect example of using vage cyan colored lighting at the back of the tank, in order to increase the illusion of depth even more.
