Paint for over flow box

I just made an overflow box out of acrylic. I wanted to paint the outside of it (the peace that goes in the tank). As it didnt turn out as neat and tidy as i wanted. Is there any paint that wont harm fish? I have some krylon fusion that works great on plastics but not sure if it is safe

yes it would be safe since you are using it on a plastic it will bond and not come off easy. scuff it good just to make shure(it wouldnt hurt).


Great stuff====$5 a can
24-48 hour cure
Epoxy to cover it====little as $5 for small projects or up to $100+ for larger projects
and another 24-48 hour cure
I hope you covered it well cuz if you didnt it will start to break down in a few months
sand is another added cost to cover up the yellow.

Pond foams====$9-$15 a can
24-48 hour cure
DONE! You can cover it with sand if you want to (YOU DONT HAVE TO) though but thats added cost again

Current Tank Info: 75 gal under way
