Egmel said:Can you not slide a sheet of acrylic behind in the colour you'd like. I know it's not quite as good as an actual background but it might be better than the red.Azaezl said:Well all I can say is I'm very annoyed, I hate how the tank looks now even more then I did before, the thing that annoys me most is I can't get a backgorund on this tank and I'm stuck with my bright red walls as a background!
I had great 'fun' fitting my plain black background... note to self, in future always leave a little more than a hand width between the back of the tank and the wall behind! Vaseline got on everything, it was a nightmare keeping it out of the tank during the process... and it still has some bubbles which I can't get at
Yup, smear it over the back of the tank, apply the background then smooth out bubbles with a credit card (or in my case an old loyalty card I don't use any more), then seal the edges with tape, I used black electrical insulating tape.REDSTEVEO said:Hi do you use vaseline to stick the background onto the glass, I have always wondered what the best method was to get the air out between the glass and the background. Once used spray adhesive won't do that again!
Oooh, now there's an idea worth remembering. I really need to get a new stand for my tank anyway, it currently on an old table which I'm sure was never made to take the weight..I also fitted a set of castors (heavy duty and lockable) from IKEA I think. You could move the whole tank about after taking about twenty litres out to stop the sloshing around while you moved it. Very convenient for rewiring and getting round the back when you need to.
Just re-read the last few posts and spotted this, hope everything went well on the 11th and that progress is being made.Azaezl said:Thanks guys Back at the hospital on monday, long story but we can't get her to take her medicine so we're having to switch to something else but the paediatrician wants to check her over again, then we don't have to go back until june 11th(hopefully).
