"It looked great."

Including the film to cut and attach to the back of the aquarium. I contacted seller and they sent me a new strip to match with the other. Not sure I could cut it and make it look good if I had a smaller tank. Overall it's a nice product for the price. Nice, vibrant, clear background unlike any others I found. Best deal on Amazon- 6 different scenes! It's really helped with the algae problem.

Exo Terra PT2951 Final Thoughts

"Great product."

I attached to the outside of my 30 gallon tank with clear tape that is removeable. The kit came with multiple backgrounds, so I just chose the one I liked best. Making sure there are no bubbles is a little trickier. I searched alot for something I liked at a decent price. O have it between two windows and it gets way to much light. I hope our little fishies are enjoying the new ambiance of their tank. I prefer the cling backgrounds to the kind sold at pet stores.

"EXCELLENT QUALITY!"

I bought it for the sides of my aquarium. Easy application and good quality photo and material. Still in great condition after using for three years. Paper is very sturdy and stunning when easily applied with normal scotch tape. However, I think it went on fairly smoothly. Fits along the back of my 29 gallon tank. The high light setting really lights up the entire tank.

"It looked great."

I have had this about six months now. Will most likely be ordering another one for our 75 gallon tank. But once cut down to size and adhered to fish tank. So, I decided to refresh my 90 and use the background lighting kit. Nice easy way to spruce up our tank. They should make that the first mention in the listing. It work great and people are always amazed this it.

"Product is as described."

I recently purchased a 40 gallon tank and I wanted to do something really creative. I bought it for the sides of my aquarium. Before and after pictures attached.

I am very happy with this and was the final touch on my new tank.

"As described."

Will post photos as soon as tank stand arrives and tank is set up completely. I just left it and wrapped it around the corners, blends right in. Image repeats twice across the width, but this is barely noticeable. It's really a really cool addition to your tank. The remote range needs to be close to the sensor about 5 ft max. Imagine my surprise it's just black. A bit expensive to me but a good buy.

"Our tank looks great."

At this size it a 2 people job for sure. Print quality was clear and sharp, looks good in my tank. It shrinks a tiny bit so don't cut it to exact size before you apply. I think it makes my aquarium very lush. Everything great about it for my 90 gallon. I'm very happy with the end results! If you are using this on a typcial tank that won't be a problem though.

"I used the dark side."

If you look closely at the picture, the sand has a slight left to right slant. We love the option to use either side. It really brightens up the aquarium and reflects the light back out. It really brightened up our fish tank. However, I think it went on fairly smoothly. I originally thoight this was only 2 scenes until I read through.

"Super cool background!"

I bought it for the sides of my aquarium. It's really a really cool addition to your tank. You can see in my pictures the bottom of the tank is pretty much white. Will most likely be ordering another one for our 75 gallon tank. This is a five gallon tank and it wraps around the side just like I wanted. If you have a spray bottle of water that will work perfectly. I really can't say enough about the overall look of this light.

I have tried adjusting the led bar's position but nothing helps. I contacted seller and they sent me a new strip to match with the other. Not sure I could cut it and make it look good if I had a smaller tank. Ordered this for a smaller fish tank to replace an old background. Personally I think the cling backgrounds look better and last longer. I think it makes my aquarium very lush. It is a plastic film- not a cling and no adhesion.

"U Can Trust Me."

It's really helped with the algae problem. When I saw Current USA's video for the Serene system I just had to have it. I followed the instructions and applied it to my tank with ease. I have been taking photos daily and the difference is very noticeable. I searched alot for something I liked at a decent price. Very easy to apply, just peel off the clear film on the front of the image and apply. I am very happy with this and was the final touch on my new tank.

"Great deep blue color."

I had a water sprayer nearby that I use for my plants and it worked like a charm. I ended up having to paint the back black in order to have it do that job. I had to order another for the other side of the aquarium, I never measure anything. That's it, no heat, no glue, none of that. There are hardly any left today and I suspect within a week they'll all be gone. Fits along the back of my 29 gallon tank. I applied my new aquarium back ground today.

"I think it looks amazing."

I probably cut about an inch of this to fit my 29 gallon aquarium. Being able to change the background color makes the tank that much more exciting. The colors are not super bright, but I expected that based on the reviews. It's really a really cool addition to your tank. Was a bit big for my tank but that was ok. First off, this background looks gorgeous. I attached to the outside of my 30 gallon tank with clear tape that is removeable.
