    I have been approached by a film company who want to use my house for a shoot. They want to paint the room in which my tank is located.

    I have expressed my concerns and they have proposed using Midas Midalux 240, attached is the datasheet.

    Irie from my experience paint fumes is a big no no. Came home one sat evening after closing the store to a white sps tank. All parameters perfect as I left it. Only change was we had the roof painted and this was not too close to the tank. Today I'm still baffled but this was the only thing that happened in the lounge that day.

    waterbased from what I can make out. if so no problem. I say this coming from a painting background. unless it actually lands in the water It would be safe. as a precaution id ventelate the room and switch off the skimmer to eliminate air/water interface as much as possible.

    I have painted the ceiling above my tank with no ill effects. I made sure plenty of ventilation and switched off the tank for two hours. I also only switched the skimmer back on the next day. The paint I used was low odour though. Not sure if that had anything to do with it.
