Another viable option to consider is to seal your bator with clear aquarium grade sealant. If you choose to go that route make sure it is the aquarium grade non-toxic version. I was considering this as a back up plan but the paint has worked so well I dismissed that idea. I don't know if I would use this in your scenario especially due to the fact that it is clear and even though it is sealed you will still be able to see the gunk. It should however make future cleaning a dream as compared to now.
There are several options but here is an example.
Thank you so much!! Y'all have been a HUGE help to me!
