This is a tutorial on how to paint an aquarium background. There are many ways to do this, and this is simply the way i do it.
I filmed this video about 1-2 months ago as i was preparing it to be a QT tank for my discus, but never ended up needing it. Non the less, i still had the video sitting around, so i decided to share it.

Who knew Quarantine tank would have an entirely different meaning starting in 2020. Cheers to the new quarantine tanks being created.
Joey meet Joe. Thanks for your video brother im about to do our tank. You hooked me up I was about to use nasty rustoleum
What if I have black fish… I actually want to put black and Blue shrimp in the tank.
How many coats did you do .and how long did you wait for it to dry
what happened to the sound?
I might be mistaken, but I thought that near the beginning of your video you said you were going to show us the fish you were putting into this aquarium, and that we'd then understand why you chose that color of blue. 🙁 Still, thanks a million for your informative video….
Why paint bottom?
my left ear enjoyed this video
Omg Joey! I watch all your current videos and just watched this one from 8 years ago. Look how far you have come! You were a baby. Love ya!
if you pull your headphones out slightly you can hear both sides.
he's the bob ross of fishkeeping
I also like blue and black backgrounds.
OMG NOW I WANT TO PAINT THE BACK OF MY GLASS AQUARIUMS WHITE 😭
thx. for the video. Good paint job too.
Haha 8 years later and it still useful cheers joey
Just wanted to say thank you for the video after all these years. I ended up painting mine a few minutes ago, took three coats of gloss black used a blow dryer between coats and it looks absolutely incredible. Easier and looks better than any background I've ever purchased. All for less than $5. Thanks again!
Wow you've come a long way. Newer videos are of higher quality. But the info were top notch then and are top notch now.
Thanks very much. It really helped.
I just finished scraping a used aquarium and it took hours, plus I adto use a degreaser. The factthat this scraped off so easily makes me think it will chip and scratch easily as well. I am goin to look for xtra black paint that I did the bottom of my chair rail paint in our music room and If I dont have xtra proably use the plastidip!
watching this video now makes me appreciate how far you've come in terms of the quality of your videos. thanks joey.
To paint the background or use window tint? Any recommendations?
Cool vid. 😀
I painted the bottom (yes, on the outside) of my bare-bottom tank, and by doing so, it removed the "mirror reflection" that you get on the bottom of the tank when it is filled with water.
Using a razor to remove paint can create scratches on your tank
I still remember watching this video when it came out and I still have to paint my tank
Hes so pure hahaha
He looks like a baby!
Does the acrylic paint will cover the calcium buils up? Are you still able to see it from the inside? Even when you covered the outside
Joey, in your opinion what color would work best with Multifasciautus fish and what was the reasoning for painting the sides and bottom?
Commenting to your one of the most oldest videos to let you know that u are so famous in future 😂😂 every one loves you
Spray paint or pylux is easier to do.
Am i the only one here from 2019?
Is this guy serious?
I really do appreciate the time, trouble and quality you put into each and very one of these Youtubes. Thanks
The video is great. I only wasn't able to find the paint that you recommended.
I have a DIY question? I just aquired a used 70 gallon half hex aquarium. They had it up and running full of fish. I noticed that the corner of the frame is separated. How would be a great way to bond it together. I'm worried about having it blow out.
Damn old Joey sounds like Bob Villa-Ross
