Evil or Very Mad I can't seem to stop water from getting in between my background and the glass. I tried applying a peice of duct tape on the top of the background to keep water from getting behind it but it doesn't work! What can I do to stop this?

I would start looking for leaks personally. It has to be coming from somewhere. Pull the background off, dry the back, wait 20minutes and wiped the back again with a dry paper towel.

hi ryan ,

the problem you have maybe one of three things !
1 tank leaking
2 condensation
3 water from tank as bubbles burst on top from air line

Its most probably condensation as both my tanks are like it in the kitchen .

A good way of finding leaks is to 'puff' some talcum powder onto a surface ( obviously covering tank ) and look where the water 'lines' appear Wink Laughing
