Rated 1 out of 5 by crcrcrcrcr Very poor.
I bought this in the store without reading reviews online first.
It's unbelievable that this thing is even manufactured. While it is pretty, the installation is a joke.
It's wrapped in a tube so it's near impossible to unravel and put on the tank. I did put it flat with heavy items on it to hopefully have it lay flat. It did not. When I removed the heavy items off of it, it snapped closed again and split in two places. Around 5 inches down.
To install it, you need tape and lots of it. I used packing tape and had to put it all the way around in order for it to stick. They do give you 8 small sticky squares to attach but that's not nearly enough since this background is very thick.
I would not recommend anyone buying this.

This aquarium background is TERRIBLE. I really loved it at first since it was so cool looking and it was 3D. Well after I finally installed it to the back of the tank (which took seemingly FOREVER) guess what? You couldn't even see any 3D details it's just a blurry mess. My tank water is perfectly clean and it is still like that. I really don't recommend getting this aquarium background. It's a waste of money basically.

1st of all I am NOT a novice aquarium enthusiast. If you are having a hard time with the thickness of this product roll it up backwards and secure it, then just use a hair dryer so it curls towards the tank not away. That being said this product is NOTHING like shown on the website!!! You only see the vibrant colors when it's in true sunlight. It truly is a 3d design, like a hologram so things pop out of the picture. That would normally be amazing but the surface isn't smooth. They do supply an double sided adhesive but the picture isn't clear through water since you can't use a liquid based adhesive. I WAS so excited when I found this background, now I need to return it and find something that can be seen through the water!
