Any spray paint works fine IME. I usually get a can of the $.75 black at walmart. I've found it's the hardest to scratch, believe it or not.

I would think so... but I've never had an acrylic tank, so can't say for sure

I'd be very careful about spraying the tank if you have fish in it you could contaminate the water. I used a small can of benjamin moore rolled it on and its been on there for 7-8 years

this tank doesn't have fish. also I'm going to paint the outside of it, and not inside.
