    I've been thinking of decorating my tank with marble statues/figurines. I was wondering if the marble-resin material they're made out of is safe for aquariums. Or do they leech toxins? And if they're not recommended... would coating it in aquarium silicone do the trick? THANKS!

    Ok so i was on a jobsite and during a dig they pulled up a few of these stones. they're incredible! they are essentially agate that fossilized seashells! agate is just quartz so it's completely safe for your aquarium, won't alter pH, etc..
