Painting background

So this is probably a dumb question but here it goes. On my 55 I have one of those tape on backgrounds which I want to take off now. Could I take my current background off and paint it without taking everything out of my tank?

Make sure to turn your pumps and filters off and cover the top of the tank very well with a clean blanket, you should be ok.
