+1. I painted my intakes and return 6 months ago and they still look great. :thumb:MalawiLover said:Krylon Fusion spray paint is all you need. I have painted all my intakes (4-XP series canister filters and several HOBs) with the Satin finish Black. Two light coats (1 heavy coat left lots of drip marks) and they have been doing great for over two years in my tanks.
