I painted a 125gal with one of Home depot 2.99 samples of latex and their 2.96 mini rollers. two coats and done.
But I now use poster board taped to the frame of the tank. for whatever reason having even a small gap between the glass and the background prevents all the little floaty things in the water from being visible. of course this is on my 75gal that has a overflow box slightly off center so there are no seams.
--this is also easy to install, cheap, and easy to change
