I used Krylon Fusion in the past and did some research on it before I used. From what I read, most suggested to let the paint dry for a long period of time before submerging, like 2 weeks or so.

I don't think you have too much to worry about if you are at 150 and recommended is 160-180. What type of shrimp are you talking about anyways? I would think less is more in your situation, and...
