Question krylon fusion inside tank?

i just got a used 90gal acrylic tank which has a blue background.. i was wondering if it would be safe to use krylon fusion paint inside tank to make it a black background?

Would NOT use any type of paint inside the tank. Might try soaking the back glass with warm water vinegar soultion and use a plastic scraper or credit card to remove blue background.
A sharp razor blade scraper can also work ,but great care should be taken so as not to scratch the Acrylic.
Keep the glass wet while trying to remove the old background.

The most important medication in your fish medicine cabinet is.. Clean water.
