What kind of roller did you use? I heard the foam is best for glass. This is my next project. Have the black plastic and the glare is terrible.

Indeed. I used a white high density foam roller by whizz roller systems. Really good rollers for really smooth surfaces.

Thanks. Itll look better once it gets more established and coraline takes over. And once I go reef with it and get some corals. Picked up my first today. Got some yellow polyps. Has some cool fanworms on it too.

Figured id share a few words. Ive painted the back of a few tanks mostly small 20 gallon longs but on both my 120 and 55 collum ive allowed the Coraline to over take the back of the tank i find it to not only look better but even have seen a drastic change on the build up that i remove off the sides and front of tank. Just an idea. ..
