new tank set up

Ok so im finally going to set my new tank up. After having it in the house almost two years waiting to have the funds. Now I want to paint the back and would like to know the best kind of paint to use.

I'm setting up a 54 gal corner tank with a custom stand and canopy to match. I will post some more pics in a cpl days with a play by play with it. I'm going to move everything from my existing tank in to it. The stand and canapy are stained black and im going with a black live sand bed. I'm hoping all the black will make the colors of the corals stand out more.

I used Krylon fusion spray paint to spray the back of my tank black and I have been very happy with the results.
