Yeah, foil looks nice, I used the greenish foil a few years back. Now I use corona boxes (the tank is in my bar). But i have so much algae the background cant be seen.

Florists have foil in all colors of the rainbow. But me, I just paint the backs with acrylic paint a couple of days before I set it up.

Yeah i'm getting too many aquariums. Maybe I'll stop setting them up after I get a 125 or 180 or 300 gallon...... Sure I will. hahahaha

Be careful using water to affix the background. I did, and we have really hard water. When I took the background off, the back of my tank was covered with calcium deposits that I cannot remove. So I bought tinted plexiglass and cut it to fit inside the tank. It makes a great looking background. One word of warning - Never cut that little plastic strip that crosses the top of your tank from the front to the back in the middle. Not good.

tinted plexiglass sounds like a good idea, but where do you get that from? How about using just tint itself, dark tint, i guess that's an idea
