Clear coat for stand?

I just primed my 20g long stand and I plan on painting in black tomorrow. I have a can of polycrylic kicking around, could I use that to clear coat it and protect it from water? Or would a different clear coat be better?

polycrylic will be fine as long as you don't let the water just stand on it for long periods...the problem i've always had with it is that it doesn't hold up so great with cleaning over time...

if your using a gloss black that should be enough to seal it IMO
my wood stand gets wet daily , I just wipe it down
