Question Safe "Clear Coat"

I have a few aquarium decorations which Ive apinted and now would like to apply a "clear coat" over. After doing a little research, it seems some type of clear inert epoxy is the best solution. Anyone ever do anything like this before? Im having a tough time finding a product to use.

Marine grade epoxy, check your local boating store.

Every marine epoxy manufacturer says "it should be ok but I cant guarantee it." The only two products I can find which ARE made for underwater living conditions are Sweetwater Epoxy Paint and Pond Armor. I think Im going to get some of the Sweetwater stuff.
