It all depends on what the paint is made out of. Even though it is waterproof it doesn't mean it is safe for submerged use in aquariums. Chemicals can leach from the paint into the water column and cause problems.

Many people have used the Krylon Fusion paint with great success.

Yeah I would monitor the water parameters and watch the fish closely over the next few weeks just to be on the safe side.
