Thread: Tank Paint?
02-10-2009, 05:18 AM #1
Is there such a thing as safe paint to use on a tank? I have plexi-glass dividers in my betta tank that I'd like to black out since my males are wanting to fight so much. Is there a certain kind I should get? Help is appreciated.

krylon fusion. do 5-7 layers to prevent chipping. no harm to tank inhabitants, ive kylon fusioned lots of PVC and put it in the tanks. let it dry for at least 3 days though

Another option would be to take sand paper or steel wool and rub it all over the surface of the plexiglass. This would make the surface a lot less transparent, so the Bettas could not see each other through them, and eliminate the need for paint.Liters to Gallons conversion calculator
