Tank Background Idea!

I just added a background to my tank :) At first I tried black but I didnt like it. It was too contrasting with the plants. And my betta didnt like it either - it essentially turned the back side of the tank into a mirror :/
So then I got a paper bag (the brown ones from the grocery store), cut and folded it it to size, wrinkled it up ALOT, smoothed it out, and clipped it to the back of the tank. It looks GREAT. Looks like a natural rock wall. Just throwing it out there if anyone is looking into a cheap DIY natural looking aquarium bg :P

PICS! (I took a bunch but my betta kept getting in the way and flaring at the lens, he's such an attention hog!)

Nice looking! I've never seen that done before, it's pretty creative.
