I am setting up a 55gal after a very long absence. I have always used commercial background posters for the background, but this time I have not really found anything that caught my eye. After reading some other posts here and other places I came across painting your own, so I gave it a try. I am no artist, especially when you have to paint backwards- detail first then the body, but I think it will pass once there is some real stuff in front of it.

Hard to tell with such a small photo!

I haven't painted my new tank yet, but I will be attempting mostly dark with a 'faraway' light source - knowing I couldn't do this backwards I bought a piece of plexi that I will paint and attach to the back of the tank. If I screw it up I can try again on the other side. If I do a nice job I can try something different on the other side!
