Is there such thing as aquarium safe paint?
 
I just bought a Rena Filstar xP3 canister filter today for my 55 gallon and I absolutely love it. =) The only peeve I have about it is the intake nozzle for it is this bright baby blue color and looks very out of place in my planted aquarium. I was wondering if there was such thing as an aquarium safe paint that I could use to paint it black to it would blend in more with my set up. Is there such a thing on the market, or am I just going to have to deal with it?

Did some research. Any paint 100% latex is safe...to be extra safe, coat it in epoxy.

Krylon Fusion is supposedly a good paint to use.

Oh sweet dude, thanks. Can I find that Krylon Fusion at any major hardware store? Does it come in black, and is it a spray?
