Two questions about new fuel tank install

I'm installing a new aluminum fuel tank in our 1984 Sabre 34.

First, should I paint the tank? The old tank was painted, but I'm under the impression that this should not be necessary. There was no external corrosion on the old tank, although again, it was painted.

Second, the original tank has an anti-siphon valve in the diesel supply line out of the tank. Is this required by ABYC for diesels? It's working OK, but seems like one more thing that could go wrong.

Thanks for your help!
