    I like black on the back of my sw tank aa1aa38050acc8f411f62499f84b7d4c.jpg as it makes everything pop, you can just use a small roller with acrylic paint, also marine blue would look nice.

    I was thinking black or blue.... I don't really want to paint it cause once it's there it's there and you have to know me but I like to change things alot lol especially backgrounds...... My poor freshwater fish have been to more "places than I can name lol

    You know the paint what you use for doing paintings like art, an art shop you could get it just a few dollars i imagine

    I think I'm going to go with black... Or I'll buy that background that's black and blue .... But I think I'll go with black it does seem to make the color pop and honestly im doing the salt water for my fiance hes color blind and the saltwater fish pop more to him than freshwater
