what i do is use windex to clean the back. then i use rubbing alcohol to make sure its fully clean. i wait for it to dry. this is best done out side. i use spray paint since its easy. i tape off the plastic and use newspaper for the sides to cover the glass. one thing you want to do light coats. i do new coats every 15 mins. with black it tends to be 6-7 coats i just keep adding them until i cant see though it.

There was an article in aquarium hobbyist mag and there was a study done on light deflected into the tank. This was done on a tank that had a painted back glass panel and a non painted back panel. The tests came back that less light was put into the tank with the back glass painted. Many many people paint the back and their tanks are thriving I thought I would throw this out there.
