Hi people

I am new to this forum and as you all seem like a friendly bunch of people I would like to ask you a question.

6months ago I brought Juwel Aquarium Structured 3d Background 550x600mm for my new 7x2x2 ft aquarium.

Well to cut a long story short within 3 weeks of the background being installed within my new aquarium the “Face” of the background begin to peel off revealing black underneath.
Not only does it now look totally unnatural but the peelings have cause me serious issues with my aquarium filters and the health implications for my fish are also questionable.

I am so concerned by this I now have no other choice but to break the entire aquarium down and remove the background and the sealant holding the background in place.

Juwel aquarium have told me there have only been a “few” similar incidents to mine.
I truly hope this is the case and im am just unlucky as it I would not wish this situation on any other hobbyist as it is a truly stressful situation.

So my question to you all is have any of you had any experience with Juwel Structured 3d Backgrounds? or know of anyone who has?

Thank you for your time and sorry for the long post also you can mail me on
