Instructions

1) Thoroughly clean the mounting surface of the tank. Conventional glass cleaner may be used. However, it is very important not to spray the cleaner directly onto the tank. Always go to another room and spray the cleaner onto a paper towel and then use the towel to wipe down the outside of your aquarium or terrarium.

2) Measure the area of the aquarium or terrarium you will be covering with the static cling background. Use a measuring tape or the numbered grid on the back of the background (count both the horizontal and vertical lines). Once you have determined the size, use a sharp pair of scissors to cut along the designated gridlines, making sure to capture the portion of the image you wish to display.

3) Remove any obstructions, which might be blocking the tank surface (e.g. air pumps, thermometers) and spray a light mist of room temperature water onto the glass surface.

4) Starting at one corner, gently peel the white backing from the static cling background. With the graphic side facing up, spray a light mist on the side that will be pressed against the glass.

5) Align the top edge of the static cling background with the top edge of the tank using your hands to adhere at least the top two inches onto the glass without wrinkles. Mist the back of the static cling background and use a burnishing tool to slowly smooth out the static cling background.

6) If needed, you can repeatedly pull back and reposition the background. The background will maintain its static cling ability.

7) Once all the wrinkles and air bubbles have been removed, use a razor to remove any excess.

8) Enjoy the new atmosphere you have just created. When necessary, pull back the static cling background to remove the wrinkles. It is the best to start from the top center and push down and outwards, towards the sides, to work out all the wrinkles and air bubbles.

    Good for small Tanks

    By Cheyenne on Apr 22, 2021

    This was a little more difficult to apply than I anticipated. The queen has a lot of air bubbles underneath it when you first apply so it does not look very good from the inside of the tank in my opinion. I would not buy this for my larger tanks

    Won’t apply properly

    By DaMama on Mar 27, 2021

    Even though the colors and scenery are beautiful we could not get the background to adhere to the tank even though we followed the instructions completely!

    Terrible - Do Not Buy

    By Korndawg on Dec 17, 2020

    Background was faded when I got it. Not as sharp as the picture shows. It faded even more over the last 7 months and now its just a powder blue grey background with no features. Attached easily enough as long as the tank is empty and lying on its side. Don't even think of attaching if your tank is full and against or near a wall. Buy something else.

    “Invisible” scratches

    By KrisKD on Nov 22, 2018

    I wanted a subtle and simple background for my new 10-gallon aquarium, so the “Ocean” floor version was perfect. When the protective sheet is removed it looks just like the online image, though it looks a bit more muted once applied. Installation was easy, but I paid careful attention to the instructions and watched the video on Chewy’s site three times to make sure I got it right. If that were all I had to write, it would be a five-star purchase. What I don’t like is that when you install it, when you get air bubbles and smooth them out, you run the risk of scratching the image. You don’t even notice it from the reverse, as you work, and you may not even see it from the front if you have I wanted a subtle and simple background for my new 10-gallon aquarium, so the “Ocean” floor version was perfect.

You don’t even notice it from the reverse, as you work, and you may not even see it from the front if you have certain lighting. In my case, the scratches were invisible with the incandescent lights, but were very obvious with the LED lighting. Again, from the reverse, there is no evidence of any “damage” to the front image. Overall, it may be better than seeing the wall and the heater and filter wires, but the scratch marks are certainly a distration. … more

    Love This Background!

    By KH1031 on Sep 5, 2018

    This background look awesome in our 30 gal. tank with our black gravel. It goes well with our pirate theme with a sunken ship! Love the price!

    Not as it appears

    By CichlidChick on Jan 25, 2018

    Although inexpensive, the background is not as vivid and clear when applied. If there is any air between the background and the aquarium a neon blue comes through. Would not recommend.

    Disappointing

    By Tracey on Aug 13, 2017

    Product would be nice if only it was as it appears in the picture of the item. It is almost entirely blue. If you stare long enough, you can make out what appears to be the floor of the sandy ocean. Didn't cost much, not worth the trouble or postage to return it.
