Effects of plastic figurine in water?

I have a plastic Bruce Lee action figurine in the Fluval Edge. I was wondering if it has any negative effects on my water and how it can effect the fish and plants.

Does anyone know?

Depends on they type of "plastic", it could be a type of epoxy. Also a lot of plastics are painted after molding. I'd worry bout the water solubility of the material and the paint.

I wouldn't worry about it either unless you can scratch the paint off with your fingernail or something.

Nah, if a blendtech blender can't take out Chuck, there's no way solvation would stand a chance. I'd be more worried about him organizing a fish insurrection.

Bruce Lee is the Master and creator jeet kune do, therefore ANYTHING in the tank, at any give moment, is minutes away from an @ss Whoopin.
