IMO, painting is definitely better and long as you use water based paint (long as it is not oil based) it is so easy to remove....IME...

Current tanks: 55g/ 40B/ 20H/, 5g
If you always do what you've always done, you'll end with the same results

I painted mine before i had fish in it, but i used plastidip (found at homedepot). I used it because if i ever want to remove it all i have to do is peel it off. You can get different colors of it if you order it online. It took me 1.5 cans for a 55gal.
