Your tank is set up already? In the house? With fish in? If so oil based paint is gonna stink BUT may be safer in the long run. Sorry I didn't read the whole thread. You don't wanna spray in the house your gonna get ALOT of over spray TRUST ME, I did it and had paint everywhere. I covered everything too! And the vapors lingered for a while.

So roll on, if your tank is in the house and set up might me a safer route. If not and it where me is spray away.
