Huh.... It looks like a pattern... Maybe that was their back of the tank where they had the background attached. I haven't the slightest idea how to get rid of it tho.

No like maybe the front of your tank now was the back of their tank then. Unless of course you got the tank with the background painted on. Then my theory doesn't stand. Just a thought!
