Best paint for glass

Hi, could any one tell the best black paint to use to paint the back of my tank, iv tried look for it but all i can find is tiny little pots and with a 5ft tank it would require absolutly loads of them.

Plasti-dip is my favorite. Easy to spray on and peels right off if you need to make a change

Pretty much any spray paint will do. I normally just use Krylon but the bargain brand will work just fine. Just do many fine coats an let them dry between coats to avoid drips.
