I was thinking of painting the back of my tank with acrylic paints, the colorful ones that you can get at an art store. Maybe starting at the bottom with a deep navy blue and working upward to a light blue/green.

don't forget about good 'ol aluminum foil ... go to a dollar store, ~$1 gets you enough to do several tanks, or one huge tank ... get the 'heavy duty' kind that is like 18" wide ...

I crumple it into a ball, then unfold and tape up ... more crumplings = more wrinkles ... makes a neat effect, as ripples from the surface try to shine out the back of the tank (from lighting angle) they get reflected back into / through the tank

you can try it without wrinkles, but I think it looks kinda like a half-assed mirror that way, not artsy enough
