  1. Hi all, quick question... I have installed a tank in a room with a few other tanks and am wanting to paint it black, was wondering if that is safe to do so while the other tanks are running? They have air pumps so was worried about contaminating them with paint fumes. The room is not particularly well ventilated. Only want to do it if it is 100% definately safe. Too much money worth of fish in other tanks to risk it haha. Was thinking there might be a non-toxic paint i could use? Thanks, tristan

  18. Bet you're sick of me by now, right? Two questions regarding DIY stuff. Gutter Guard as an alternative to Egg Crate, the only Gutter Guard I've come across is either metal, or incredibly flimsy, I've heard that there's some more expensive rigid plastic available, but I haven't been able to find it at my local Bunnings, any ideas? Paint for tank interior, I'm looking to paint my Overflow and Spraybar's black. There's a product available from I believe the US, called Krylon Fusion, which is a spraycan safe for tank interiors and works on pretty much any surface. Any alternatives available locally or am I going to need to order some of this stuff? Cheers guys, Ryan.
