Background Question

What's the best way to put a background on an already set up tank?

LFS's sell laminate like plastic background ... let let them know your tank size and tape it to the back glass. I recommend a simple black background ... it'll make the colors in your tank pop!

Try to tuck the top edge of the background under the plastic rim on your tank. That way accidental water spills won't get between the background and the glass. Trim the rest to fit with a razor blade and tape it on.
