I'm not sure how he does his backdrops, but I have a copy of a Nature
Aquarium World video and can tell you that at least in the tanks he
displays for the video, his backgrounds are not permanent.  

In the video, he displays his tanks with blue, black, and white backgrounds
for very different, stunning effects.
