I use black poster board on my tanks. Its cheap and it looks good in a little while I will post a picture of a tank I redid yesterday for some blue rams I will be getting next week and you can see the back ground on it really well.

That does indeed look very good, well done.

I agree on the background, black would be best with all the other colour you have with the substrate, plants and fish. Dull is best, construction paper or poster board as Amanda suggested is ideal. The plastic garbage bag would be too shiny and you would notice it too much. Backgrounds are always most effective at increasing depth perception when they are dull.

That's a nice looking aquarium.

Byron.

The last couple of versions of Windows has an editing program that you can use to reduce the size of photos on your PC. This has worked for me to downsize large photos. It reduces the MB when you decrease.

Even MS paint will do it... Or you can download a free application called Graphic Converter that works well too.

Mine are the same, i just open paint and reduce the size to 80% of original and the pics end up just a little under 2mb.
