I have also though about the rubber cement of hot glue gun. But knowing my handyman capabilities everything else would stick to the tank but the background.

Well it looks as though i will just try ghetto tape!

Much appreciated

For one of my tanks I had a piece of plexi cut to fit. I painted the plexi and used clear packing tape hold it one. The packing tape was invisible and the plexi could be removed an repainted if I wanted another color.

For my 90 gallon, I just painted the back - which produced very nice results.

You know you are a true fish-o-holic if you can field strip any powerhead on the market.

We have just scotch taped ours up in the past. Now we have a peice of wood painted black and just sat on the ledge of our tank. It seems to have worked the best.
