    Hey all- I want the back of my 300 gallon to be black, I know plastidip works great on glass, but what about acrylic? and also how would i get it off, if need be, since a razor will just scratch it everywhere? thanks

    I also like black backgrounds. I use "black foam board". Just cut to size, then tape it to the exterior back of the tank. It works great, somewhat water proof, easy to install & remove and the most important factor; inexpensive.

    IMO, it looks seamless, but I'll let you be the judge. This pic is of my 120 long w/black foam board background. You can buy big sheets of it at Hobby Lobby. 20181208_142703.jpg

    another thing is its like 6 inches away from the wall, so i need the back to look as clean as possible. This is stressful mannnnnnn

    also how much are they?

    I think it cost about $6 for a three foot x three foot square.
    My tank is about the same distance away from the wall.
