Hey guys,

I need to paint some pvc parts black, and they will be submerged inside the aquarium. Is there a recommended paint that I can easily buy from HD or Lowe?

Thanks.

Hi Tom,

Would you recommend this for use on large tank, I want to buy this for my 225G tank. I saw your post back in 2007 saying AS isn't ideal for large tank.

Thanks.
