does anyone have other ways besides tape to attach their backgrounds to the tank?
Tape has always been my method for attaching a background to a tank. Though since I prefer a black background these days I just paint the backs of my tanks with a latex paint.
For the plastic paper backing, I use cooking oil. Smear over the back of the tank, and smooth down with a credit card.
It takes a while to get all the bubbles out, but well worth the effort. It looks much brighter than if taped to the back.
cooking oil and credit cards? :lol:
make sure you dont get that oil on your card :P
Sounds messy. but if it works, great!
i wonder if baby shampoo would work? thats what is used by these places that put window tint on cars and trucks.They put it in a spray bottle and mix with water and spray it on then apply the tint and squeggie the excess out..
the back of my tank is painted black with chalk board paint :D
my tank before had a textured backing that you silicone into the tank.
my dads tank had stick on mirror, stuck on a board and rested to the back of his tank.
