I just put a background in my tank. I put it inside so that it would look brighter, and more 3 dementional. We put silicone on the back. I have heard this doesn\'t last long, but I wanted it on the inside so I thought I\'d try. I really wanted these sticker things that they make specifcally for this, but I couldn\'t find them anywhere. Also with the silicone, I thought, well at least it will keep the water out from behind it, but it didn\'t. I guess there were a few places that weren\'t water tight. I\'m not sure if thats going to work, because it might get kinda gross back there.

What has anyone else used? Any suggestions? ???

By the way the background looks does great now that its on the inside, definetly much brighter:)

I put mine behind the tank/on the back with velcro. Thank God for velcro!

put a thin layer of vaseline on the back of the tank (I use a paper towel to spread it around) then lay the backing on it and use a credit care to flatten it down & to remove any air bubbles. It works beautiful!

Thanks, I never heard of that. I\'ll have to try it if this doesn\'t hold. Does it last long?
