I think that will make a world of difference. I think a black or blue background would look nice. I got a local sign shop to cut a piece of black vinyl for my 75g.

It is the static cling type, I'm curious to see how it will work out. He recommended using a razor blade to scrape the glass and then clean it real good before applying it. He also said to use a credit card or squeegee to help keep the air bubbles out when applying it.
