Best tip I can give you when it comes to putting background pictures on a tank is to carefully coat the back of the tank with vaseline, or baby oil ensuring none enter the tank, place the back ground picture on top and using a credit card or similar squeeze out all air bubbles. It makes the finished result look a great deal neater and you dont get air pockets which can make your background look strange.

Michael I know what you mean, I used soapy water and tape on my big tank when I renewed the backing pictures a few month ago and its now a mess. Going to have to strip it down and go back to the old favourite of vaseline.

It works great just be careful not to get any vaseline into the tank.
