Can I suggest painting or doing a dark background? and you can add more rocks, some nice river rocks etc... But it's coming along.

I hear ya, you don't have to move the fish to paint the back, just use a roller an ago slow. But I understand if you wanna wait, do what your comfortable with.

I got ya, tape off everything real good, wash the area your going to paint with rubbing alcohol, let dry and paint!

When you go get the paint just let them know your painting glass, use thin coats rather then one heavy coat, this will help prevent drip.
