I have an acrylic tank that I would like to attach fleece to the back as a background, any ideas or tips on how to attach it?

I thought about velcro, a magnet sounds like a bad better idea. The fleece will be loose around the tank, I'm not sure it will warm the water. Its in my basement, so any warmth it would provide would help the heater!

Thanks for the ideas!

It would help insulate the tank a lot.

Personally, I'd use gaffers tape and tape it up nice and tight. Magnets are iffy unless you use rare earth or some other high powered magnets a little tug and the whole thing would come toppling down.

I actually used garbage bags for the background and it came out really nice!
