Could I put these in my tank?

They are hand carved marble sculptures my dad got in Bahrain or Korea. I think they would look cool in the tank and give something for my betta to swim around and such. I don't see why they shouldn't be able to if I clean them, I just wanted to make sure before I did.

as long as they dont have any gloss or anything on them they should be fine, just rinse them in hot water before you put them in just to be safe

Marble will raise hardness and pH I believe. Not good.

If you have an extra tank/water change tank, I would clean them, leave them in a tank with no fish for a couple of days, and check the pH/hardness of the water. Of course, check it before, and then after they've been in there for a while. :)
