Making Objects Aquarium Safe

Hi. Anyone know any specific products that's also readily available to be used to seal and protect objects? I have a Shist rock with a painted logo on it that I would love to put in my aquarium and make it safe for my cichlids. Cheers

The object will have no clock parts on it. Just rock and painted logo

I'd be more concerned about the paint washing off over time

That's why I'm looking for ideas on sealing/protecting it. I've seen it done on the show Tanked. But never give any details on what they use.

Everyone entitled to their opinion but I got the Pond Armor from doing research.

I used acrylic paint to redo some dragons I had and sealed it with the dishwasher safe mod podge because it's meant to be submerged and it's food safe and I've never had any problems. I just waited 24 hours between coats of paint and mod podge.
