Black light paint

Hello, I was wondering if there was a type of glaze or sealant that I could use over a rock I painted myself. I'm trying to add some inexpensive black light effects to my tank. However, I'm not sure how to keep the fish safe from any toxins in the paints. Any recommendations? Thank you! )

I would apply marine resin over the paint.

Got a link that says that? There are several black lights sold in the aquarium trade, and I've yet to see any research that shows that they are not safe for fish... seen it said a lot, but no proof.

Will this is from an old test I did on goldfish about 3 years. And I guess I should say not all are bad but the short length wave lights are the bad ones and I have my video test I did some were. I will post them if I find them
