Went with a satin latex. I used it on the other 125g and liked it. I have a can of higloss still but will only use it for the back if I run out of the latex.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

There are some no/low VOC paint so if you painted it and then left for a weekend it should be okay... especially if you can borrow a good air filter for a couple days.

Ill look for my link but theres black plsatic film that looks to be pretty nice stuff you just spray whatever surface you want it on with water then squeegee it and that creates a suction. I use the clear on my iphone and its near impossible to scratch and if anything goes wrong with it i just peel spray and reapply
