Painting back of acylic tank

Will be painting the back of my acrylic tank this weekend. Does anyone know what kind of paint works best on acrylic? Also I've read foam rollers work best on glass, is this true for acrylic? Any suggestions would be great.

I just painted my glass tank last week and used a soft sponge roller and the black acrylic paint from Joann's art store. That paint takes a few coats to cover and is real easy to work with. Don't buy the cheap yellow roller from the art store. Use a better one from home depot. It makes it easier to roll on. I also used a small art brush to detail the holes around my bulkheads. Hope that helps.
