Tank toys and figures

Can resin figurines be used as tank decorations or is it safer to stock to items specifically made for fish tanks?

What specifically do you want to add? A lot of things are safe if they're properly cleaned. I love terracotta pots :) I'm not totally sure what resin coating is other than derived from trees.

I am sure this resin is synthetic. I am talking about the little figurines that you can get at knock knack chops. I have a few that would look really nice on the tank but I am not sure if they are safe..

If you could post pics. Or run your own test by putting them in a bucket of really hot water (to see if peices or paint falls off)
