I was wondering, is it safe to use spray paint on the background of my tank?
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.
You're welcome. Good luck!
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.
