If the tank is not being used at the moment, you could tape it off and use any shade of Krylon you would like... After it dries it is no toxic and will not peel off without a razor blade.

Yes, Krylon would work...but make sure you can spray outside, as you need excellent ventilation....especially if you have fish/pets in the house....and time to dry....not sure what the Kansas weather is like right now.

Kansas weather today was pretty windy today. It was about 55°F but the wind would have made it a real pain. I bought some Colorplace Enamel Interior Acrylic Latex. Got it an Ink Drop color which is really dark blue. I'll get pics up later tonight when it's done. This way I can work inside. Got my masking tape and everything ready. Wish me luck. lol

Finished painting... some of the paint came off when I pulled the tape off so I left some of the tape on. lol I might strip it all and use krylon and paint it black... or try to match this color. I think the color looks great. Heres a before and after...
