Regarding backgrounds,I use the blue tape on,the other side is black so I can switch it if I want.Why paint on a background when you can do the tape on.You have the option of easy change or to remove it all together .IMO the background does focus the lighting for more pop.

Regarding the Sweden law- I thought Sweden was very liberal as far as nudity goes,can't believe they would pass a law against aquarium nudity. LOL

maybe there is some benefit to fish? Some folks go a bit overboard sometimes.

I think I may stick with the black background now. It seems to keep the light IN the tank rather than all around it, plus it makes everything POP in side.

Thanks guys for all your responses, it's nice knowing what the rest of the forum is doing as far as this subject.

I have a black background on mine too, I totally agree that it makes colours pop out more. I cut up our new black bed sheet for mine because I didn't want anything that permanent either. I thought my mrs was going to go crazy because im always taking things apart and using things for my tank lol.

LOL. Well it got the job done, albeit a bit more expensive! I'm going to look at 2 tanks tonight a 125g and 135g and if I get one I'll have to decide.
I'm leaning towards painting it black. Latex paint would come right off wouldnt' it? I'm not sure what I painted my 125g with but it sure wouldn't come off now without a lot of work
