Canadian Betta Keepers: I need your help!

Hello fellow betta keepers. I have been looking for a decoration that I do not know whether or not exists. I figure if it does, it would probably exist in Canada. Does anyone know if any stores (preferably ones with online selections) sell inukshuk decorations for aquariums? I LOVE inukshuks but can't find any aquarium safe ones here in the states.

I live on the NY-Quebec border, close to Montreal. I don't mind going to Montreal to pick one up if I happen to be in the area, which is rare. That's why I would preferably order online and have it shipped to where I am. I would absolutely adore one in my aquarium!

In case anyone is wondering, this is an inukshuk:

ive never seen anything like that but it would be easy to make with some rock and aquarium sealant.

They are statues that the First Nations people make. I thought that since it was the winter olympic's symbol, it might have caught on as decor. Also, its popular in some parts of Canada.

Why not make one from safe rocks and silicone? Best way to see if rocks are safe is to pour some vinegar on them, if they bubble, not safe.

Sorry should have clarified, I know what they are as I am Canadian and you can see them all over the place in certain areas. I meant is never seen one for a tank.

All pet store sell a small tube of aquarium silicone. I personally don't use pet store stuff, but I use GE Windows and Doors Type I. Always leave the finished product out to dry for 48-72 hours before adding to a tank. You want to make sure there is no smell from the silicone.

Just plain ol' vinegar from a store :)

Sounds good, I am have to try! Too bad they don't just sell any. They're so pretty and I really love them. I guess white vinegar will be good.
