I've seen a lot of aquarium using black as the background. I kinda of like how the plants and fish show up with the type of background. I was wondering how you did this? is it just sheet of paper taped to the back like the normal backdrops or is it painted on the back like at my local aquarium store?

You could do it either way. I simply turned one of those blue aquarium backdrops around and used the black side. Some people will paint them black...but its pretty hard to remove should the need arise.

I just go down to any office store and buy poster board and tape it on. Painting is permanent or at least very hard to get off but is always an option. black really brings out the colours of some fish and plants. hope you enjoy!
