hey all,

I just set the new tank up

Tank Post

and you really cant see the background at all!

the water is tea stained from the wood and such (which I like) but the back ground is very hard to notice... until the flash goes off with the camera in the second shot.

Anyone have experience with this and solutions to make it more visible?

TIA!

I have a solution for you...

I had this problem once and was told this by a fellow p-furian... smear cooking oil or vasaline all over the side of the background that you will be looking at (make sure you cover it all, a ight covering is enough).

Place the background in place and press it against the tank using a towel or something of the like. This will, as you will see, remove the trapped air and give you a bright background.

If you have trouble getting the air bubbles out, use a credit card to 'push' them out.
