Don't get me started on the background colour! I wanted black but my g/f convinced me that blue would look nicer It's too hard to break down the tank to replace the background now though as I don't have another tank to temporarily keep the fish in.
I have tried white and light blue. I like the light blue background and I think my fish do to. I got this info first from Nick at Discusbydesign, the color is Light Blue #20364 by Plaid Apple Barel Colors Indoor/Outdoor Gloss acrylic enamel. Wal-Mart and Michaels both carry it. Here is a pic of a tank painted with this paint.

Paint the back of the tank. One of my own preferred options, as it’s not expensive, very easy to do, and looks good. You can use any proprietary gloss paint for the job, and the best effects are achieved using a roller rather than a brush. The colour is of personal choice, but a dark background causes less stress to the fish. My preference is for a mid-tone blue, which blends well to the overall effect when the tank is finished. There are a couple of points to note here though. You should never paint the tank when it’s filled with fish, because the fumes given off by gloss paint may affect the water, and any drips or splashes of water will cause problems with the finish. So if you want to paint the back, best to do it before filling the tank!
