Painting Fake Root/Trunk System
I nabbed an old, fake root/trunk system that had previously been used with iguanas and I've cleaned it so that it is ready to go into my 120 gallon tank which I am currently aquascaping for future fish. However, the item looks fake because of its coloring (it is a yellowish color) and I would like to paint it a dark brown so that it will fit my theming better. What type of paint do I need to use?
Little paint can undergo the harshness of the underwater.
It could cause catastrophe.
Well, there is a spraypaint that I know can be used underwater, and a lot of people who make DIY built-in sumps on reef tanks use it in the tank; Krylon Fusion (the one that adheres to plastic). That may work for your tank, but I would most be worried about a fish/invert taking a little nibble at it and flaking it.
the only safe paint for the internal use of an aquarium is
a Two-part epoxy paint for potable water tanks (NSF 61/USDA/ANSI/AWWA and FDA certified and approved) (or your countries equivalent)
any specialist paint stockist will know this paint
