Painting ATO container

I ordered an acrylic container that came clear instead of white. Can I spray paint it without any adverse effects to the material?

Similar to this:

To match the white stand and help inhibit mold.

krylon fusion if you can still find it. Sprayed the ATS container I made black. No issues and the krylon fusion paint really sticks well to the acrylic.

If it’s on the outside spray with whatever will bond to it. As stated jetliner fusion is best. Try dixiline if there is one or online too

I searched high and low locally for it. Only way for me to get any is online. Decided to leave my return pipes white. Coraline is already starting to cover them.
