    Hey all,

    I have my return pipe split into a T in the tank to help with flow, but it's made of grey connectors and blue pipe. I want this to be black to it will "blend" into the background (which is black).

    What paint is safe to do this with?

    If you leave it long enough it will be covered in coralline.

    even if you used paint which is safe to use it would peel off in time, i agree that corraline is the way to go, you could also graft a piece of star polyps onto it if it were really a problem and you wanted to hide it :)
