One of the best investments I've made so far...
I'm not sure why this isn't more popular, or maybe I just haven't looked hard enough but...
I was looking to add a black background to my 40 breeder. Unfortunately, I was struggling with options because my tank has been filled and established for a while, so while fully filled there was no chance of moving it in an easy fashion.
This left me with a couple options:
1) drain and move the tank
2) find a simpler solution.
I decided I'd try option 2 before anything else. I knew painting the back wasn't going to be easy, so I opted to purchase a black vinyl background. Needless to say this turned into a nightmare trying to get all the bubbles out, so I ended up trashing it.
I decided to head to Hobby Lobby and browse various options. I came home with black felt and some stick on Velcro. I cut it down to size, and stuck it on in <5 minutes! Turns out, it was super easy to install, I payed only $7, and it looks just like a painted background in my opinion!
So if anyone else was in the same boat as me, or just wants an easy cheap solution, I recommend trying this.
Cheers TPT :-)
I literally love my aquarium(s).
