I don't know what it is, but there is one, there are many manufacturers that paint decorations specifically for SW tanks.

The only paint I know is safe for sure are the epoxy paints used on swimming pools...I'm thinking this wouldn't be a viable option for your purposes though. Perhaps you could find some sort of epoxy paint in small quantities?

look for instructions on the wooden DIY tanks, they paint those to seal them, might be the epoxy paint, not sure, but that should be safe.

Wouldn't the paint seal up all the crevices and holes in the rock, limiting the benefit of it becoming live rock?
