    Hey,
    I don't know if it's an emergency or not, but my aquarium's wallpaper's peeling.

    I never noticed it even though I try to keep a close eye on all that's going on in the aquarium.
    What's worrisome is that there's space between the sheet and the glass wall of the aquarium and my platy especially swims there in that corner, up and speedily back down, then up and then speedily back down. I don't want it to get cut.
    Can it get cut by doing that?
    It also goes behind the sheet.. :/

    The aquarium backing should be taped to the back of the tank on the outside. Just remove it from the tank, dry it and tape it to the outside.

    So I removed the wallpaper, but there are these glue spots. Is this glue harmful for the tank water or my fish (in case they nibble on them)?

    I doubt the glue is toxic to fish. If it's silicon, you can scrape it off with a single sided razorblade.
