Its plastic. The wood doesn't match the room, can I simply paint over it?

It's not a dumb question if you ask it.
Too many tanks? GASP! How could that be?

You could paint it but it might flake off over time. I would be worried about it somehow getting into the water if it did.
What about tape cut exactly to the size in one strip? Duct tape comes in just about every color now

get the stuff that has the picture of a plastic chair on it. I dont remember the name. You may want to scuff it with 500 grit sandpaper, found in automotive.
