Stained glass

Is there any way to get a stained glass effect in the back of the tank? best I can think of is to put up some translucent paper or like the theater gels they use for background lights behind the glass and then have a light behind that. Then again, background plants would completely cover that stuff up.

Ive done this - not so much as something that i planned on doing but because the leftover material was there and i just figured i'd use it. it actually turned out quite nice!
you can pick the stuff up at any home depot / lowe's hardware stores.

Ooh, I was thinking something closer to https://www.stagespot.com/expendable...mpler-kit.html, then cutting them apart with black paper in between (I did the same for "stained glass" in a play once), but I think I like the window film idea better.
