painting a Biocube

I used my 29g Biocube once for a reef. After I emptied it before I moved, I had Coralline Algae all over the back wall. So, I scraped it off wit a razor & hard bristle brush.

It's been a while, and I want to start a reef back up in it. However, the back is kind of grey-ish, with scrape & brush marks all over it.

I would like to paint the back wall, so it's a dark black again.

Any suggestions?

Krylon spray paint is used for plastic but to paint glass and in saltautolinker.com autolinking image water I don't think it will work. Your best bet may be to get a piece of black acrylic cut to fit.

No, it would be just for the plastic back wall....no glass painting at all.

Ive heard Krylon Fusion is safe for in the tanks so should do what you need.

If i drew it it'd look like a monkey eating a horsradish on the moon or something
