If only the lid to the grow chamber is see through should it be transparent or translucent. (Window, very easy to see through, or clear but blurry so that light bounces around inside). Oh and should i paint the inside of the grow chamber black or is that pointless.

dont paint the inside of the terrarium,
for 1.its pointless & 2.its toxic.

are you growing cakes or casings?
cakes: where the most light comes from, is the place your caps will point to.
casings: make sure the pan isnt see through. (u dont want mushrooms forming underneith)

As for translucent/transparent, it's simply preference. It will not affect your growth in any way. I'd choose transparent and apply a very thin layer of vaseline to a small part of the inside of the lid. This way you can check on your growth without removing the lid.

Vaeline prevents condensation from building up and allows you to see into the chamber.
