I don't know of any bottom paint that will completely prevent slime. Some are a little better than others, but I think they all slime to some extent. The difference seems to be how easy the slime comes off your bottom. I think the slime comes off some of the more expensive bottom paints a little easier than the cheaper stuff.

Your paint should not be peeling off the 2000E. If it is, the most likely cause is the cheaper generic bottom paints adhesion quality, or the finish surface of the 2000E. I have 2000E on my boat, and I paint with interlux micron extra. A good coat of bottom paint lasts me 2 years, and I have no peeling.
