Never heard of plasti dip but Kyrlon fusion spray paint is aquarium safe. FW or SW.

Probably not. Once algae starts to grow on it and fish pick at it there is a good chance they can tear into it and ingest it.

I wouldn't risk it. Plasti-dip is meant to be easily removed which means the fish might be able to get at it. Who knows what would happen to the fish if they managed to eat the stuff.

So, when I put the handles of some tool that I've dipped in it in my mouth, that might not be good, either?

Hmmm. Not gonna go there!


Usually not. But when my hands are full, it's sometimes handy to hold something in one's mouth. The plasti-dip makes it easier on a guy's teeth!

I've seen small flashlights plastidipped for just this purpose. I like those headlamps or the lights that mount on the bill of your ball cap, personally.

Is there any other type of paint that you could use to paint the extension tube and it wouldn't be harmful to fish and inverts?
