For my 2.5 gallon tank, I used a large 3M label (mine came from Office Depot), printed Manet's Sur l'herbe on it and then adhered it to the tank. It's a fun background, covering the back wall completely.

Plus, when using a large label, there's no mess and you can change it out as often as you like. When you want to change the image out, do it when you're cleaning the tank.

How about start just using paper to get the colour you like, then when you are sure on colour go permanent with paint. :)

I couldn't control myself, and I had to mix up a few different colors and I ended up with a really nice robin's egg/sky blue. Let me know what you guys think?

looks like it turned out well.light enough that his gray will stand out and the red should pop with the contrasting color. dark enough to calm him. good choice.

Thank you! I'm the kind of person that could end up repainting it 12 dozen times in a month. Hahaha. So I guess it's good that I use water based paints. lol.
