Resin Decorations

691 2
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?

You should probably coat the statue with a couple coats of clear acrylic. I used krylon clear coat. This was suggested to me by another member and it has worked well for me. I have used it to cover several things to use in my tanks with no problems.
