Default 1 gallon tank and paint

Hello, I purchased a 1 gallon tank but it looked like cr ap when I got it. So... I repainted it flat black and liked the way it looked. Problem....when I fueled it after 2 days of drying the gas started eating the paint. Was I spose to hard coat it ? I don't have access the the machine shop I used to. What coating do they use on the original stock 2.5 gas tank that came with the kit ? Thanks
P.S. will the smoke alarm go off if I bake the painted tank in my house oven say.....on 150 degrees ?
