Can you post a pic of it, If it has gold design, It may be lead based paint, and bad if the water detiorates it..

I wouldn't just invade there is something in the paint. If you really want it in the tank you could always clear coat it so water never actually touches it.

hmmmmmmmm I wonder what word auto-correct turned into "invade." In case! That's it!

Honestly, I don't think it'd hurt anything. If it's on a shot glass, it's *probably* okay paint. I don't think there's lead in any paint besides some wall paints. But one never knows.
