Spray Paint..

Hello Everyone,

I want to paint the back pane of the aquarium glass.
The best way to light proofing should I use Krylon Fusion Flat Black or Fusion Gloss Black or Fusion Satin Black colour.

For example, on this topic which one has been used ?

A glossy/high gloss/mirror coat will give you the best "light proof" backing.

I'd go with the gloss as well, but more because the color on flat black paint looks faded when you're looking at it through glass.

Hope your background turned out the way you wanted. I used flat black on my tank and I didn't really notice much of a difference from the gloss black. I guess it is because the glass makes everything look gloss
