Question about Backgrounds (Probably a dumb one!)
I purchased a plastic background sheet for my tank -- the blue on one side, black on the other side Penn-Plax sheet. I have double-sided tape all set to affix it, which I've heard is the way to go. (Any other opinions?)
My question is -- I need to trim it to fit my 29 gallon tank. Do I trim it to fit the glass precisely, or do I trim it a little larger so that I attach it to the black plastic trim on my tank at the top and bottom? I'm assuming I should trim it to attach to the plastic so the adhesive doesn't show through the glass at the front, but before I cut, I figured I would ask.
Also -- do you put double-sided tape along the vertical edges as well as top and bottom? I'm guessing that there, it would be hidden by the silicone in the joints and that taping all 4 sides would be more solid, but again, thought I'd ask for other people's experiences.
Any other tips for attaching the background? I feel like I'm really taking the plunge to serious-planted-tankdom with the background!
