If your aquarium is not filled/set up yet, then DEFINITELY paint the background. I forget what kind of paint you can use, but a lot of people paint the back glass black and it looks really nice.I'm setting up my aquarium tomorrow or the next day and I totally forgot about background....just curious if anyone has any ideas or tips? I saw a black background at a petsmart that I figured I would get if I don't think of anything else. So anyone who reads this and has some tips, I would be greatly appreciative!
The black backgrounds from petsmart work well too, but it doesn't look very good when water gets in between the glass and the background. Just have to make sure that doesn't happen.
