For the inside,paint it white. Velvalglo is a good paint to use.
excellent advise and you dont even need a undercoat.. its a thichsotropic paint so dont stir before use.. its meant to be used thick... it is solvent based so allow good ventilation and curing time before putting back near the tank...

oh just another thing it has an anti fungacide addetive in the product already so mould so long as theres adequate ventilation is almost never a problem.
