Question Aquarium Safe Paint

I want to paint a couple aquarium decorations. Any advice on what to use. I'd really hate to kill off fish by using something toxic to them.

krylon fusion seems to be highly recommended for in-tank applications.

+1 for Krylon Fusion. It's designed to stick well to plastics. Just be sure to give the paint a few days to fully cure before putting it in your tank.

Hey guys, Ive been looking to get some Krylon Fusion spary paint when I came accross Krylon H2O Letex. This website: Krylon: H2O Latex says its 100% acrylic latex. Isn't that what we are supposed to be using; acrylic latex? What type of paint is Fusion then? I just want to make sure the paint will be non-toxic to my fish. Thanks!
