CeramKote54 epoxy coating of the tank would probably do the trick nicely. It is an epoxy based coating designed for potable water tanks.

Any suggestions short of replacing the tank. 80 gallons and a pain to get it out if it has to be removed.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
