This rock made my 10 gallon toxic. As soon as I put it in, my fish started dying. Even with it removed, fish still die.
I have that cave but nothings wrong with it.It just bubbles up sometimes.

These are the times we ended up returning because they clouded the water. The "Pagoda On Rock" thing didn't react until a few hours before we decided to return the buddha thing. To bad, the fish really seemed to like it. Neither smelled weird or left any sort of residue in the water ....just milky/cloudy discharge stuff

I also have this item, but it has never had a bad reaction! (which is weird because its made of the same materials as the pagoda thing above...) :

It's not entirely dangerous but I know eventually the paint chips off and the shark is grey not blue, I thankfully noticed what was happening.

I bought this tower at Petco (also made by petco), I had it in my tank for about 2 weeks and then the paint started to bubble and soften. When I ran my fingernail over it, the paint came off. I'm pretty sure it also left an oily film on the top of my water too as I haven't had an issue with the water since I removed it from my tank. The inside is also pretty sharp. I tried to leave a bad review on petco's website but they won't post it. Basically, it's a piece of junk.

This product DID leave a film in my tank. I tried washing it, letting it sit, etc; but everytime it goes in the tank it leaves a thick film on the top. Such a shame since it was on sale. The teal version of this hasn't had the problem however. I have the teal larger version in my tank and there is no film, no chipping paint, no problem at all....

I had a bubble volcano from petco. (http://www.petco.com/product/114875/...-Ornament.aspx). The paint flecked of in about a day, and i am still getting red paint out of my tank.

That's disappointing. I have the orange version (the short one) from Petco and have had no trouble with it so far. I've had it for 6 months. Too bad the taller one gave you problems, because I'd like something taller now that I have a bigger tank.

A female went up through hole inside, that you can't see, and tried to get out of the hole. Not even a chance to save her.

I now run my hands inside every ornament to see if they have holes, or sharp edges. There are ceramic logs that "look like" real logs but, if you run your hand inside, it is all sharp edges. Again, these are guppy ornaments but put with the betta supplies.

Is this for bettas? I was about to buy this at walmart today! I figured it was too rough and small though.

Thanks for sharing!

Another thread I'm glad to have come across! Very useful info in here. I was looking around at my store's fish tank ornaments, and what brand are pretty much all of them? Yep, Penn Plax. Looks like I'll just be sticking to the silk plants for my guys for now, not gonna risk it.
