I love a sleek black fixture myself.

If you did go with painting it get a high quality metal or appliance spray paint and take your time with it. Take off those hanging clips or brackets if you can so its easier to paint. Masking them off is an option too but it might leave you with a few gaps of unpainted fixture in the seams.

o no doubt. gonna take it apart in the morning and see whats what. i really wanna make everything black to make sure that nothing takes away from the coral and what not in the tank.
