Quick question: does anyone know if there are any negative affects from having krylon on the inside of a larvae tank?

I wouldnt see why not, i use it in my main tank just fine without any effects but fry could be a lil more fragile that adult fish and coral can handle.

Well, through trial and error I found out that no; larvae cannot handle krylon in their tank.

My question is why would you want to paint the inside of the tank? I would have painted the outside for many reasons.

I used it to paint a formed acrylic sheet in a kreisel. The outside of the glass was painted, but the krylon on the acrylic was exposed to the water in the equipment chamber.

I highly suggest buying colored acrylic instead of using any paint on anything that goes inside the tank. Its a recipe for disaster.
