what paint is safe for aquariums?
I am making a cave for my tank out of pvc piping, and i looked everywhere and could only find grey pipe. I am going to silicone stones to the cave to make it more natural looking, but i'd like to paint it black or brown first because i think it would look better with black/brown under stones than pale grey.
what kind of paint can i use that is aquarium safe??

I personally use " krylon fusion" for any plastics in my tank. It is made for plastic and seems to hold up well to being submerged...... Scott.

Same here. I've used Fusion many times and had no problems with it at all.Angel breeder wanna-be

Used krylon as well to paint diy pvc spraybars. I like to take a piece of sandpaper and rough up the pvc a little bit so the paint can hold on better. Also do several light coats instead of one thick coat, it'll look better and won't peel off.
