Enhance the beauty of your pet's aquatic environment with this double-sided background. Made from durable, water-resistant material, the background is suitable for use in freshwater and marine aquariums.
I chose this background for my 5.5 gallon tank because I didn't want to spend 12 bucks on a background. This one was low cost and it looks great and was easy to work with. It obviously by the picture has a background for fresh and salt water. I used the freshwater and I think it looks nice. To install I just unrolled the whole sheet and centered it on the front of my tank. I taped it in place and used a razor to trim the excess from the bottom and sides. No measuring or drawing lines. Once it was the rights size I moved it to the back of the tank and taped it in place. This only took a few minutes and now I don't have to look at power cords behind the tank. I would recommend this background if you want something that looks good and is only a couple bucks lol.
I didn't read everything the packaging said before buying this, as I believed it to be a plain static cling just like the other products offered on the shelf. Later did I realize that it wasn't, and that it does actually say on the packaging that you need to buy special tank glass adhesive or use another method of sticking this to the back of your tank.
I used some plain transparent tape, and it looks fine.
Having two backdrops with only having to cut one piece is great, though! And it looks great with my natural-looking tank setup. It wasn't any more expensive than the others, too.
