Painted background

Okay so I am going to paint my 2 tanks black with Krylon Fusion spray paint, my question is should i get flat, glossy, or something else? Which one looks the best?

I went with a flat black spray paint for my last tank. I've used semi gloss and gloss latex on other tanks and to be honest you can't really tell the difference unless you look at it from the back. lol

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.
