i can confirm this much:

GE Silicon 1 is safe.

Behr Masonry and Basement waterproofing paint is safe

Krylon Fusion is Safe

I have 3 amazon puffers in a tank consisting of all of those and they're perfectly fine. puffers are even more sensitive than most fish.

This piece is going to be 'new jersey meets tacky tank'. I am looking to carve a nuclear power plant out of styrofoam. Something post meltdown. Stocking with glofish a black light and some blacklight paint.

Can't wait to see this!!

Maybe you could add some glass cats? Keith Richards? (It's been reported in some circles that he already survived a nuclear meltdown.)
