Kit contains:
  • Water Color Background
  • Squeegee Applicator
  • Spray bottle
Directions:

Prepare a Soap-Water Solution:
Prepare a solution by adding 4 drops of normal liquid dish soap (containing no lotions, oils, waxes or enzymes) to the provided spray bottle.

Prepare Work Area and Materials:
Measure the area you wish to apply background to and cut the background to that measurement. Make sure the work surface, aquarium and surrounding area are properly cleaned to avoid contaminating the background. Even if the aquarium appears clean, it should be cleaned with the spray soap-water solution (make sure aquarium surface is clean of all impurities).
*Do not allow background backing to get wet!

Applying Water Color Background:
Use the spray soap-water solution to wet the aquarium surface you are applying background to. Make sure your work surface and surrounding area are clean and free of contaminates. On a flat surface (like a table or countertop) place the background color side down (keeping the backing parallel to the work surface). Wet the entire adhesive side using the spray soap-water solution. Carefully place the background (adhesive side) to the aquarium surface you are applying to. Lightly squeegee horizontally, working from the center outwards to the left and then to the right. Applying more pressure, continue working the remainder of air and solution out form between the aquarium and the background. Allow 90 minutes for adhesive to set before moving or touching applied background.

*Background to be used on outside of aquarium, not in the aquarium.

Comments: Great product! A little tricky to apply, but after using this on several aquariums in the past I finally figured out the best technique. If you have never used this, my advice is to thoroughly wet the glass and the back the film! The wetter the better! Trust me it will still stick once you squeegee the excess water out!

HORRIBLE

Comments: Save your money and do NOT purchase this. While it may work for small tanks, this was an absolute nightmare to apply to my 150 gallon tall aquarium. The product is not 'easily' moved after applying the solution, and instantly sticks to the glass. Any attempt to alter its application to the glass ends up with the product sticking to itself, which will never allow it to properly lay flat across your glass. Also, if you do not remove every single air/solution bubble before its 'dried', you'll never get those bubbles out- and if your background color was blue, you'll get to enjoy solid black bubbles spotting your blue background like a fire department's dalmatian. Seriously, don't waste your money. I'd rate this 0 stars but its not an option.

Comments: The background deep blue color is outstanding. Really adds depth to the aquarium. However, downgraded 1/2 a star for difficulty in applying to a 150 gallon tank. Took three of us to do it. However, I would still recommend this product.

Comments: I used this on the back wall of a 93 gallon cube reef tank and found it very easy to use. The only hard part was holding the rolled up paper flat so you could mark and cut it to size. After you remove the paper backing the film will stay flat and easy to work with. It went on the tank great with no air bubbles.

Comments: It is not easy at all to apply this background, I'm sure it would look good if is set correctly but you need experience applying this kind of backgrounds, I have to take off mine because it didn't put it right and just look bad
