    Marine paint is the best route to go. There is also a marine finish. Marine products are made to withstand the intense humidity and dampness along with possible submersion.

    Cool

    Jerry, I have used Kilz, and it works fine, unless you place the treated wood in a very humid tank. I've noticed that mold has started to grow on it even though the wood isn't sitting in water. The humidity is close to 100%.... I didn't use a finishing coat though... One a positive note, I have a Drosera terrarium made out of wood that has been sealed with Kilz, and there is no evidence of mold, even after 9 months.
