    Krylon Fusion Paint is what everyone uses for the aquarium. I use it on my intake , I spray it on my pvc after I sand it a little an gave it a couple of coats and let it dry for a couple of weeks. But when it was put in water I notice it had tiny little pin bubbles all over it ? Should I have use a primer first or do I have to use a sealer after it sets, It look nice when I got done painting it the first time .

    Vinegar?

    Hi,

    I have never used primer, though I do thoroughly clean PVC, the only thing I can think is that you did not get all of the debris from sanding.

    A little distilled white vinegar and water works for me. :)
