Tank background color question
I just got a used 75G acrylic tank. I want to paint the background really light sky blue but the problem is that the back piece of acrylic itself is blue, and not clear.
So my only option is to paint the background on the inside. I've heard people say that Krylon paint would be safe, but it seems like it's been done only to paint pvc and other junks that go into the aquarium, not the background itself.
My concern is that algae will inevitable grow on the painted section. I'm thinking that paint might chip off when I scrap the algae off or it might stain the paint. Any thought on this? Should I try it anyway or just deal with the existing color, which I dont think looks good for planted tank.
