Making a aquarium hood, need to know what paint is safe.
i have almost finished making an aquarium hood for my tank. I was wondering if anyone knew what kind of paint is safe to use on the interior? I am also planning to varnish the outside, this would be safe too right? as it's on the outside. Thanking everyone in advance.

Just another recommendation for Krylon fusion paint for metals and plastics
If you are using wood, I would suggest a resin based paint as it will seal the wood better than krylon will, at least IMOIf you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.

Anything that doesn't flake off.
Purists will use an oil based primer. I happen to currently prefer acrylic.
Flat white for the interior. It's actually more reflective than glossy.
Bee keepers have been doing the reflectivity thing far longer than anyone else.
