I have used it frequently on PVC pipes for making hides. I need some larger hides & don‘t like the terra cotta color. Would Fusion flake off or something on the clay surface?

I believe fusion is an enamel, not an acrylic, for whatever that matters. It is designed for long-term water immersion, and generally considered aquarium safe once completely cured. I suspect it would stick to terra cotta just fine. One way to find out!

Now I’m all dazed and confused. Look what the Kykon site says. The paint is not flaking off submerged PVC. I’m gonna try this in my sister’s tank first.
