Actually, this question applies to my fish pool, but I guess the question can be asked here.

I have spent several days cleaning our fish pool and have decided that the concrete has become too rough, algae collect easily and cleaning gets worse every year.

So I wonder whether I should use epoxy paint or polyurethane paint? I'll need to smooth out a few holes in the concrete so  whichever I choose I'll need an appropriate filler. 

Thanks.

I rather would avoid any painting. The algae are eaten by the fish, you can see them sometimes how they are biting, licking the walls.  Why to make their ambience too much artificial? They like to have it a bit muddy, like in their natural life...

Check out Jotun Paints, I cannot remember the name of the

paint used to paint pools, ponds etc,  but the brand is Jotun,

 

Painted my pond about 20 years ago, and it's still holding up

good, but the algae still grows on it.. it's a 2 part paint ,mix the

hardener with the paint, very tough finish. comes in different

colours, I chose Blue.

That is correct, but to make it even better you put a clear coat with the hardener mix also first as an undercoat. Also comes from Jotun.

 

Then the Jotun paint which is good but only comes in blue currently.
