That's ingenious. Thinking about it, I might try running some tipex into one of mine and letting it set on its side, that should give a nice white background. It better work, guess there wouldn't be any getting it out again! :lol:

I really don't know off hand, You could just paint the outside... it doesn't matter too much on the outside as long as it's non toxic.

I did it with hubrol because it was the only thing I had to hand. I wouldn't recommend it though.

Tipex changes water chemistry.

Why would tippex change the water chemistry? It's a cyanoacrylate and, as far as I am aware, that shouldn't alter the carbonate hardness of the water once dried which is the key factor. However painting it inside neatly will be completely impossible! I'd go with the outside if you really want to do this and would perhaps seal the tippex on the outside with something non-toxic and more durable than tippex such as clear pond paint or varnish.
