Safety of un/coated polycarbonate
Trying to find a sturdy yet machinable base to attach my driftwood to, but I've had to deal with some setbacks... namely money and transportation problems. So I need to make do with what I have, and I happen to have some Lexan (polycarbonate) sheets. I've read differing opinions on using this stuff in aquariums - reefers seem to do it all the time, but others on this forum and Dendroboard have concerns of BPA leaching.
I've made the bases and coated them in Drylok. Are they okay to use? At least a little less toxic now? Or should I put all this on hold until I can get something safer?
