If the Vall develops yellowing leaves and no new growth, there will be a problem, but otherwise, slow growth is OK.
Ok, by shiny I meant glossy/lamenated. Like the ones they sell at fish stores. Plain black construction paper looks a little grayish and I'd like a more solid black color.
@eileen : The last thing you mentioned was what I used in my 29g tank and I like it. That's what I meant by shiny. I'll look at other papers at walmart and stuff. If there any that are that glossy color? how is the contact paper?
