Well, in for an update. Peeled..yes peeled like a tangerine off the black background. The paint I used form a FANTASTIC plastic type film on the glass. Loved the finish..just moved to Discus and they started to pepper. I bought 8 of Tony Tan's Discus - 5 Scarlets and 3 Diamond Turqs. Beautiful fish..schooled the second full day home. Noticed they started to pepper with the black background. I HATED the idea of scrapping the back but it just peeled off so sheet-like I giggled. It wore like iron so I was very surprised but pleased.

Found a great Glidden color called "Sweet Baby Boy" soft blue which in almost the same as my Sherwin Williams wall color. This is perfect. The Discus love it. The Turqs were almost so dark I couldn't see them against the back wall. Once I painted it the light blue they sparkled like sapphires. Will post the pics as soon as dinner is finished.
