Aquarium Backgrounds #1
Hi

I know this is probably a stupid question, but anyhoo.

Where do I put the nice pretty background picture that the wife bought, inside or outside the tank? And if the answer is inside, what on earth do you use to attach it?

Hi

I use mine on the outside and find if you keep it damp it helps the refractive index and gaves a better quailty view of the background.

Re: Aquarium Backgrounds #4
Is it better to attach the background with tape or glue?

The back of my tank is a Mirror so it looks like i have a lot more fish than i really do and makes the tank look bigger!
