I decided that instead of painting the back of the tank or even sticking on a background the only way is to use car spray..
So we cleaned the glass soap and water inaide and out rinsed and dried..
Then we cleaned the back glass panel with nail polish remover then buffed it up..
Then over 30mins irayed several coats and boy it worked, at first i thought oh if this dont work its back to basics..
Boy am i glad it did so why not try using matt black car spray paint next time..

& also wouldnt recommend any spray jobs as it does travel and could easily be inside your tank
