I used Benjamin Moore most, Sherwin-Williams often also but any quality paint store brand would please you I suspect. If you are aiming for black black choose a factory mix and not one tinted at the paint store. There is just too much pigment in black paint for store tinted black to work. The paint store will have something that works.
Especially if using acrylic latex products remember they are dry to touch in a few hours but need 30 days or so to cure before plunking something like an aquarium.
You might see if the store carries or can order you a quart of something with urethane or melamine in black. Black porch and floor enamel might hold up to something heavy like an aquarium.
