Black or dark blue seem to be best at making the fish stand out. Either way, stick to a solid color so that the design doesn't interfere with your plants and fish.

For glue you can use either aqaurium silicone sealant or something along the lines of a two part epoxy (eg Araldite) and there are a number of paints that are aquarium safe but the easiest way of ensuring that the will be no reaction is to use a pond paint. Whilst still wet you can put sand onto the paint and it gives a very 'natural' finish. Polystyrene works very well for creating the background itself and is easily shaped.
