Talking Painted bottom!

I couldn't decide on the substrate for my new 55 gallon and on what kind of background, so i thought about painting the background flat black and started searching the web for painted tank bottoms and i found this
http://www.turtles.net/showthread.php?t=90586
So i decided to paint mine, i used flat black spray paint and American accents stone spray.

That is a great background for tanks! I bet there are lots of colors to choose from in that paint line.

But won't the cories miss rooting around in some substrate?

That's actually a really good idea for tanks where you need it to be bare bottom but the fish don't appreciate just glass.

The corydoras at the fish store I go to are kept in a bare bottom tank and they do fine. If they seem to be missing substrate you could always just put a dish of sand in for them to root around in.

I'm so happy to find this. I wanted to paint my tank back but I was unsure, whether the textured paints like the sand would show through to the other side. Looks great! I can't wait to do this to my tank.
