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.

PROS
Ease of use, looks great on all kinds of tanks
REVIEW
This is a very delicate item to ship due to getting creases in it. Well Marine Depot understands that and went above and beyond to make sure my background got to me undamaged. They used lots of packing materials and a good sized box. As for the Blue life background, it's the best sold background I ...Read More

PROS
Not much to say here when it simply doesn't do the job it is intended to do.
CONS
Far too fragile, ripped without even touching it.
REVIEW
Nothing about this was difficult, however the product tore once it was placed on the glass and even before I started to use the plastic squeegee to edge the air bubbles out from under it. Just way too delicate. This was a total waste of money.
