I think jacktheknife means putting it behind the tank.

No chance it would really get wet except maybe a splash or 2 which won't really hurt it.

I've seen alot of foil backgrounds at the lfs, so it must work fine. You can get lots of interesting water resistant wrapping papers (foil and polymer film) at places like Michaels.
