Yea, I know. I have used WD-40 to take labels off of stuff sinnce I was younger. Works great but I don't recommend it for fishy stuff.

Great ideas ! thanks guys !
As for the mag cleaner... I don't think I'm gonna clean the back or the sides.. and if I did the felt on the outside would be fine I would think... I think I am going to go with a very dark blue... I like the blue and the black is nice as well. I wonder if the black will heat up the tank though... It's a 55 gallon with a corallife 265watt light.. Maybe a lighter blue..

How abotu a pic from the front ?
Does the paint stick no problem?
I would think so...
I was whinkin 3-4 coats spray on and call it good, maybe even a coat of clear coat to make it smoother IF I wanted to clean the back with the magnet glass cleaner..

the paint should stick to the glass without any issues, just be sure that it has been cleaned throughly (salt residue can keep it from sticking properly) and of course dry after you clean it. I wouldn't wory about the clear coat. If you use a spray paint, be sure to cover the top of your tank well to be sure no spray over gets into the tank.
