I have a friend who is a Marine Biologist and she ran a barrage of tests on my tank water, way way beyond what we have access to test for. There was a 0.01 % occurrence of Titanium Dioxide and Xylene (both products used in the manufacture of Krylon Fusion) detected in the tank. It was actually less than the 0.04% which was found coming off a store bought fake driftwood painted in skin tone Brown...just for thoughts.
The test was conducted before the DIY overflow ever touched tank water.
Thanks Tazman for this info that makes me feel better about using the Fusion line if I go to paint something..
