Best background

I just read a post about some clingy background from lowes and it peaked my interest.

I currently have my painted with acrylic paint from walmart. Which over time has gathered drip lines. I am considering changing it soon.

So my question is what are you using for background? Why do you like it and why don't you like it? And where's you get it?

I just use the black plastic stuff from petco. My petco can't get the computer system to work right to charge you by the half-foot so they only charge you for one unit of it no matter how much you buy so it's like $2

Got a question about loaches? Ask me!
Loach count: 21
Baby fish count: 700+ (shelldwellers, gbr, angelfish)

I've used cling backgrounds , painted but was never happy , now all my tanks are sprayed with flex coat it looks like ryno coat I love it don't scratch or peel and it looks great ,
I wont coat a tank any other way now , if you do use this stuff be sure you mask off everything you don't want coated and spray it out side as it can be messy , I did mine in my living room 2 years later I'm still using a wire brush on fire place to remove the over spray I got on it , you can actually see it in pict
Fish are like lifesavers
They come in different colors
