Re making your backgroumd darker.....
I have a planted background on my tank. Its about 1-2" away from the glass. One night when I came home, I noticed that part of the background was all of the sudden WAY more vibrant! What I found had happened was, the condensation on the back of the tank (I had turned up the heat to accell cycling) made the plastic background stick to the glass. It never looked the same just by physically pressing the background plastic against the glass with my hand. So there's a big difference between a background just placed behind the glass and a background stuck physically to the glass.
So I concluded that if you can get some black plastic and maybe apply some vasilene to the glass as a sealer/adheasive, that might best give you the black background you're trying to attain!Yup, I got fish!
