So, i got a used 55 gal, and it has a mirror on the back. I hate it, and im sure my fish will too.
First i tried scraping off the mirror and the paint, but judging by how long it took to get a 1x1 inch square done, itll take me a week and a half to do it, and thats if i only do that, and nothing else!
I gave up on that i dea, and proceeded to fill the tank.
Will the mirror really bother my guppies? Or other livebearers?
I bought a background that is 16 inches tall, my tank is 21, but thats okay. Problem is, the water moves the background around, and it just wont stay. I was hoping it would just stick. Fools wishes! >.<
I tried suction cups, but apperently, my suction cups refuse to suction.
is there ANYTHING i ca do, besides empying and refilling?
As a last resort, i will drain and refil, but...55 gallons?! That's really not going to be fun..As it is, we spent the morning filling it!
If i do have to drain it, my friend claims i can use super glue to adhere the background to the tank? Should i do the edges? the edges and a line every inch or so?
Oooor...Shoulld i just keep the mirror?
Will my fish be so stressed they cant handle it?
IS there any thing i can do to lessen the mirrors effect?
I am getting my cycled media tomorrow, so id really like to get this situation done by tonight, or latest tomorrow morning!
