ADA backgrounds any good?

I was wondering if anyone uses these? any pics?

"Colorfully decorating the background of the aquarium, employing a background color sheet gives a change in the image in the layout. This Aqua Screen is a translucent Clear type which enable lighting to travel through from the back and produces an interesting atmosphere."

i've only seen them on the tanks on the green machine. They appear to be a vinyl film similar to the tint on car windows though thicker allowing light to pass through to some degree. I suppose it all depends on what you hope to achieve in the look and feel of the tank. I am somewhat partial to the green background but i suppose this would be the only type of background i would use in a rimless tank since going rimless sort of falls in line with simplicity.

You might be able to create the same effect with Auto window tint or a trip to your Friendly local vinyl graphics shop.
