Which spray paint for glass?

On my other tanks I brush painted the back. But on the new 20 long I want to spray. I can't find Krylon Fusion at Home Depot or Lowe's. A Home Depot employee recommended Rust Oleum 2X. Is it good for glass? If not what is?

Just get plastidip, you can easily remove it if you ever decide to. Gives a great black background and if it doesn't turn out right you can rip it right off. It's cheap too

Why paint the back at all? Any perks of doing it?

Easier to apply than a stick on. No bubbling or anything, But plastidip is great

Does it give it a cleaner look rather then the regular glass back?

I think so I've done both. But if you do a good stick on job they can be equal but I prefer the spray

I found a small hardware store called Turner Hardware that has Krylon Fusion. So I'll pick up a can next week.

i use plastidip too. if i ever want to remove it all i have to do is peel it off. no razor blade needed so no risk of scratching glass or acrylic
