We paint the backs of our tanks either dark blue or flat black.

I use a stick on thing my LFS has. Nice and easy even when the tank is full. Otherwise I know a lot of people use Krylon Fusion

I dont use a background. Clear glass. Not that a background is bad.

I've used Fusion for the most part. Just use thin coats to start if you paint.
I'd definitely skip a background on a peninsula tank. lol
