I'd recommend you 3d thin background for Fluval Roma 240. The 3D rock background is around 3-4cm thick, but it has very irregular structure and it's hard to estimate if you will be able to squeeze it between the pipes and the glass. If you don't want to have any problems with fitting take the thin rock design, which is only 1 cm thick.
Some of our customers managed to fit the grey rock background inside Fluval Roma 240, but probably they have adjusted the background or pipes.
This rock background comes in 2 sections (2 halves), because of the cross bar in the Juwel aquariums. If you have original Juwel internal filter in the corner, you should remove it if you want to install 3D background. We recommend any good external filter, you can hide the inlet pipes and outlet pipes behind the background.
The line of cut is straight, but when you join both sections with tabs provided, it will be less visible. You can use other ornaments or plants to cover the joint. You don't have to silicone the background inside, as it sinks.
The space from glass to front of background in some points is between 2 to 3 inches. Background is made from poly-resin, which is safe for all aquatic life. Our backgrounds sink, it's not a foam.
Installation is very easy, you only have to slide it inside your aquarium and background will stay in place. The background is not flexible, you can't bend it, but you may trim it by using angled grinder, hacksaw, dremmel
We can do any size of background with drilled vents in desired placed. For custom built background please contact us or visit www.backgroundquote.co.uk
