How to measure your aquarium before ordering a 3D background?
Measure your aquarium inside, not outside. Get a measure tape and measure your tank inside from corner to corner, and from bottom up to the top edge of tank. If you have a support brace across your aquarium measure from bottom up to the brace bar. The background has to fit under the brace. Please bear in mind that our backgrounds are not flexible, so you can't bend them. Our backgrounds sink, you don't have to use any silicone to fix them. You just slide the background inside your tank and background will stay in place. You can have water and fish in your tank during the installation of background, but we recommend to drain around 20% of water to avoid any spillage during sliding the background inside.
Leave a finger gap between the glass and the background, so you will have enough room to fit the background inside your tank. On the side edges of the background we fix a greyish foam which will fill the gap between the background and the glass. Fish will not swim behind the background, because the foam stripe will block it.
