Safe to paint?

Recommended Posts

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

A few dollars buys a roll of air line to allow you to temporarily locate the air pumps outside the room. Gladwrap over the tanks, taped on for good measure, and paint with water based paint like Dulux weathershield.

...or since the fish are valuable what about using stick on sign-writers vinyl instead of paint.

...or suck it up and move the tank out to paint and then re-install.
