Krylon fusion dry time

I just spray painted some acrylic sheets with Krylon Fusion Satin Black. They're drying in my garage as of now. How long should I let them dry before using them in a tank? The tank gets pretty gentle flow. Also should I soak them in a tub of water after they're done drying to let stuff leech out or is that unnecessary?

Shouldn't have to soak it at all, as far as I know it's completely safe for aquarium use once it's dry. I'd give it at least 2-3 days to dry completely just to be safe.

I might wait until the smell goes a way a little , I always went 24hr or more and always stayed black for years.

I asked Jake about paint in a shrimp tank, he said a week will suffice to allow it to cure completely.
