Aquarium safe paint

Ok, so my hubby is making me some custom dividers out of plexi-glass for my 10s. So CUTE! He is drilling holes in the shapes of different pictures a flower and hearts on one, a fish on another , and such. I digress... Anywho I was wanting to paint sections of the dividers so the boys' will only have windows. So what kind of paint(s) are safe? Thanks so much.

A couple google searches have yielded Krylon fusion, and 100% latex paint as common answers. But you might want to do some more research on this first before giving it a try.

I agree with Dragonflie, Krylon Fusion is one of the better safe ones that dries and adheres the best. =)
Sounds very cute what your hubby is doing, I'm jealous!

I'm afraid I'm no help with the paint but I agree with Myates, how nice of your hubby! It's a miracle if I can even get mine to come to the pet store with me anymore, LOL.

Mine just sighs at me when I tell him I'm going to "just look" in the pet store.

Same here. He knows that if we are just going for dog food, we are coming out with at least one other thing plus the hour I will probably spend browsing XD

I found some info on krylon. But I didn't even think of the latex paint. I'll have to go get some and try it. I asked my hubby one time why he does all these cute little things for me, his answer was "resistince is futile". Hehe
