Grid System and Single row structure

The default Bootstrap grid system utilizes 12 columns. It’s responsive grid and adapts to viewport. Below 767px viewports, the columns become fluid and stack vertically. The fluid grid system uses percents instead of pixels for column widths. Each row always include 12 columns (for example col-md-8 + col-md-4 = col-md-12).

CSS Files and Structure

If you would like to edit the color, font, or style of any elements, you would do the following:

If you find that your new style is not overriding, it is most likely because of a specificity problem. Scroll down in your CSS file and make sure that there isn’t a similar style that has more weight.


So, to ensure that your new styles are applied, make sure that they carry enough “weight” and that there isn’t a style lower in the CSS file that is being applied after yours.


The theme includes a css file wich you can use to edit the colors.
You just need to add the corresponding CSS file to the head of the page like this:

Main Menu structure

Just change brand name, upload your logo to images/content/ folder and you’re ready to go!

In order to create mega menus read the documentation here:

Utility classes are low-level structural and positional traits. Utilities can be applied directly to any element, multiple utilities can be used tohether and utilities can be used alongsie component classes.

Utilities are intended for frequently used CSS properties and patterns, like: floats, containing floats, vertical alignemnt, text tryncation. Relying on utilities can help to reduce repetition and provide consistend implementations.

  • Fishtank uses utilities for the following categories:
  • Typography
  • Display Types
  • Paddings
  • Margins
  • Line height
  • Borders
  • Colors
  • Transform
  • Section elements


Media Sections

Fishtank supports media sections with Parallax, KenBurns effect and videos.

Parallax Section

We are using stellar.js for the parallax effect. Check their documentation to check which attributes you can use in each parallax section.

Our custom data-attributes for the parallax section are:

  • data-height: Define the minimun height for the sections
  • data-type: Type of Media Section (parallax/kenburns/video)
  • data-image: Background image for the section.
  • data-image-mobile: Fallback image (Should be smaller than the original) that is loaded for small devices. This will help you with the bandwidth, you’re welcome! 🙂

Ken Burns Sections

KenBurns section supports one or more images that you should add inside .media-section-image-container

Our custom data-attributes for the kenburns section are:

  • data-height: Define the minimun height for the sections
  • data-type: Type of Media Section (parallax/kenburns/video)
  • data-image-mobile: Fallback image (Should be smaller than the original) that is loaded for small devices. Kenburns it too much for ipads, iphones and so on, so we allow you to fallback to a normal image section. This way your browser won’t crash 🙂

Video Sections

We recommend you to use html5 video instead of vimeo, since in some specific browsers the sound won’t be muted.

Our custom data-attributes for the video section are:

  • data-height: Define the minimun height for the sections
  • data-type: Type of Media Section (parallax/kenburns/video)
  • data-image-mobile: Fallback image (Should be smaller than the original) that is loaded for small devices. Phones don’t autoplay video, so we just replace it for an image
