I laid my tank flat when painting it. That way the chance of runs is less.

Unfortunately I wanted to do this with fish in my tank. I also have fries in the tank, and the parents would definitely be angry is I were to remove them.

I've done it with fish in. Like I said. Cover EVERYTHING REALLY REALLY GOOD, you'll be fine. And fusion is perfect

Nice and slow light coats. Take your time. I've painted over 20 tanks some full and some empty. You'll be fine if you take your time.

Good luck and shoot some pics.

A lot of people seem to have this.
Regal Blue-Paint Spray Krylon- Krylon-Tools-Painting & Supplies-Spray Paint

Would that work? Is my only option Fusion? Because I called many hardware stores, and they have fusion but not in patriotic blue.

That's fine, I've used it a few times.

Did the regal blue look good on the back of the tank?

Ah, I am really fighting between black and blue.

When I get my african cichlid tank, I am probably going to get a maingano, so would it not look as blue with a blue background?

I did blue in one tank and regretted it. Now I use black spray paint. Especially for African Cichlid's
