For the inside of the tank, I used POR 15. You must follow all the steps in the instructions from cleaning, drying to coating. I used it on a tank a couple years ago and have been very pleased with it. There are other products similar to it, but this is what I have experience with
 
The cleaning is what determines your outcome. After I used a chain to scour the inside, I used muriatic acid as a wash for 15 minutes, rinsed well with water, then air dried with an air hose. They recommend their cleaner but I've never used it.
