    I was thinking of painting my blue rena inlet tube from the light blue to black. Any recommendations on a good safe paint to use?

    I haven't tried this, but I have read a lot of comments where people think this is the greatest paint ever made for plastics going into the tank: Krylon Fusion spray paint. I see it often at my hardware store, but just haven't needed to try it yet.

    Marine expoxy paint, pool paint etc

    Glue some wood, rock, sand or cork to it and "plant it".

    Sometimes that does not go with the aesthetic

    RE: Krylon Fusion, This does work, but can scrub off pretty easily when cleaning algae or crud. Marine Epoxy always works ! HTH, Prof M
