Won't hurt the tank at all. If the tank is empty, then no problems. If fish in there, then you need to move the filter so you can spray the back, and seal off the top, as well as the filter. The fish will do just fine. Also, the textured paint really doesn't have a lot of fumes, but I still recommend using a fan to blow any fumes away anyways, to be on the safe side, if doing it in the home. Also, that paint also splatters alot, so cover everything in sight, lol. Even stuff 10 feet away. I didn't, and ended up scrubbing off my entire entertainment system, lol. And my white walls, lol. But I'm single, so no worries there, LOL.
If empty, you can lay the tank on the front, and spray the back. If doing it in the upright position, it's more complicated, as you need to do it in thin layers (which is how I did mine). If you don't, it will run on the glass, as it's really smooth.
As for leeching through the glass, I use Windex all the time with no problems. Just don't spray it over the top of the tank so the mist gets in the water.
Figure on this, my 29G took 1 can, and got a 2nd which I partially used to cover any thin areas where light was getting through. And my 75G took 3 cans, 2 for the job and the 3rd to do any light areas.
