I used it on a new tank. Of course I sprayed it on the outside of the back. I was surprised how many coats it took to cover it thoroughly, but I am very pleased with the results.

Just do it before you add fish and water, and do the outside of the tank, not the inside

Texas Domer makes a very good point! It worked best for me to have the tank lying flat on the ground, back facing up, and I taped newspaper over the sides and the open part so I did not get spray where I did not want it.

Don't forget to clean the tank outside where you want to apply the coatings. Isopropyl works great.
I would use black Plasti-Dip. this can be relatively easy peeled off in case you want to change it sometime down the road.

Be prepared to spray a lot of layers, which need to be dry between before coating the next. I didn't count but I think I have minimum 10 layers on my tank.
