    All,

    I am interested in painting the back glass on my tank for the background instead of taping one on. I have my tank down, due to a malfunctioning heater, that subsequently took all of my fish, and want to take care of a few projects while it is down. My question is, what is the best paint to use? Im thinking a spray primer would be best, because it sticks to many surfaces, and I would still get a gloss through the glass. Any advise?

    Thanks,
