Painting the Outside of Aquariums
Ardan Huck March 14, 2003

It is sometimes preferable to paint the outside of the aquarium (back, sides and bottom) to bring out the colors of the fish or to lighten the fish so as to reduce the appearance of "peppering".

A removeable piece of styrofoam can be used, or paint can be applied directly to the glass. Latex paint or acrylic paint is preferable. Most prefer flat, although some have used gloss with good results. A light blue color works well. To remove the paint in the future, razor blades can be used on glass.
