"I just love these lights!"

If you look closely at the picture, the sand has a slight left to right slant. I do recommend having two people to install it and laying the tank flat. Not hard at all with the right tools. It is easy to install but you NEED to follow the instructions. However, I think it went on fairly smoothly. I have been taking photos daily and the difference is very noticeable. Being able to change the background color makes the tank that much more exciting.

Galapagos 7 59834 05401 6 Final Thoughts

"Very easy to use."

I might just add an led light bar to the top of my aquarium for more effect. Print quality was clear and sharp, looks good in my tank. I applied my new aquarium back ground today. It shrinks a tiny bit so don't cut it to exact size before you apply. However, I think it went on fairly smoothly. Also had an issue with the first light sent and they replaced it very quickly. Bought the 16 x 32 for a 29 gallon.

"Best of the best."

I applied my new aquarium back ground today. Making sure there are no bubbles is a little trickier. Easy application and good quality photo and material. This is the best material background I have found and cheapest in price. Will most likely be ordering another one for our 75 gallon tank. I had to order another for the other side of the aquarium, I never measure anything. This couldnt be any easier to install for me.

"Very easy to put on."

A bit expensive to me but a good buy. I am using it for my vivarium and I absolutely adore it. I am using the blue one and it really brightens up my tank. Easy application and good quality photo and material. If you have a spray bottle of water that will work perfectly. O have it between two windows and it gets way to much light. I prefer the cling backgrounds to the kind sold at pet stores.

"The colors are great!"

Perfectly delivered in thick round cylinder to avoid damage. There are hardly any left today and I suspect within a week they'll all be gone. Was early and both sides look great and had no issues. It doesn't adhere at all, but a little scotch tape handles things just fine. Will most likely be ordering another one for our 75 gallon tank. I do recommend having two people to install it and laying the tank flat. I probably cut about an inch of this to fit my 29 gallon aquarium.

"Very happy with purchase."

I thought I was getting an aquarium picture. I had one with plants on it before and that made my tank look dark. Print quality was clear and sharp, looks good in my tank. Nice easy way to spruce up our tank. It really brightens up the aquarium and reflects the light back out. Not hard at all with the right tools. I might just add an led light bar to the top of my aquarium for more effect.

"I recommend."

However, I think it went on fairly smoothly. I tried a few different ones to see which I liked best. I have tried adjusting the led bar's position but nothing helps. Was not as bright and sharp as this image. Personally I think the cling backgrounds look better and last longer. Putting the light on though is a 2 minute job anyone can do. Image repeats twice across the width, but this is barely noticeable.

"It is pretty."

Very easy to apply, just peel off the clear film on the front of the image and apply. The remote control with a memory feature is awesome. If you are using this on a typcial tank that won't be a problem though. Also had an issue with the first light sent and they replaced it very quickly. Fairly easy to install and operate. I just left it and wrapped it around the corners, blends right in. I'm very happy with the end results!

Worked well for my little<10gal square tank. Was not as bright and sharp as this image. If you look closely at the picture, the sand has a slight left to right slant.

"Very easy to apply!"

Was a bit big for my tank but that was ok. However, I think it went on fairly smoothly. Great option for an inexpensive choice- especially for aquatic turtles! If you are using this on a typcial tank that won't be a problem though. Just make sure you wouldn't rather have the whole Serene kit instead. It is very subtle and adds a perfect& finished look to my aquarium. Great option for an inexpensive choice- especially for aquatic turtles!

"Def worth the money."

All of the designs look really great. Cut roughly to size but leave a little big. I'll update this review with a picture when I get a chance. It is a plastic film- not a cling and no adhesion. I have a 90 gal tank which seems to be a bit too tall for a single led bar setup. I just left it and wrapped it around the corners, blends right in. I have been taking photos daily and the difference is very noticeable.

Including the film to cut and attach to the back of the aquarium. Thank you Current USA for putting life back in my old tank. It's really a really cool addition to your tank.

So, I ended up buying a 75 gal aquarium. The cling is pretty strong if installed correctly. Just make sure you wouldn't rather have the whole Serene kit instead.

"Watch the size."

I'll update this review with a picture when I get a chance. I prefer the cling backgrounds to the kind sold at pet stores. It really brightened up our fish tank. This looks exactly like the picture- very thin cling film with vibrant colors. This is the best material background I have found and cheapest in price. I might just add an led light bar to the top of my aquarium for more effect. Just make sure you wouldn't rather have the whole Serene kit instead.

"I love this background."

I prefer the cling backgrounds to the kind sold at pet stores. Will post photos as soon as tank stand arrives and tank is set up completely. There is a grid on the backing paper so you can measure easily to cut to tank size. I ended up having to paint the back black in order to have it do that job. I attached to the outside of my 30 gallon tank with clear tape that is removeable. I choose to use the screws rather than the included double stick tape.
