    You can also try Maizies. It's called ABS sheeting:)

    Why don't you just paint it black with Plascon enamel. The plascon one doesn't peel. You will need two or three coats and it will work perfectly. I have found salt to get in between the plastic and glass whihc looks really crappy

    i would do it but it will be such a mission to try and paint it as the tank is close to the wall and i don't really want to move the entire tank away from the wall to paint the back
