LBW - that looks really good! I've never bothered with any sort of background before but I might after seeing yours. Not that I'm stealing your ideas or anything...

wow, some great responses!

I'd love to spray paint, but the tank is full and in place against the wall so I can't move it without draining alot of the water. its against a white wall too, and on beige carpet so I don't want to risk it.

I'm going to try to steam this afternoon!

LBW - would car spraypaint do the job here? I haven't seen any textured paints over here like the ones you showed us but I thoguht that some of the metallic colours of car spray paint would look nice.

Why not use a mirror? Dare to be different.
