Is this beehive decoration safe?

I noticed its the same brand as the evil pineapple house with a metal base, is this one safe? D:

Read the reviews about it & then decide. There are 2, one says the paint the bubbled up & the other loves it. The description says its resin so it should be safe in that regard.

The paint has bubbled, but nothing seems to be affected by it. Just asking if anyone here has had experience with it.

I understood your question, I was just pointing out there was a good & a bad review. If the paint bubbles most likely its going to flake off & personally I wouldn't like that even though it wouldn't effect my water parameters.

Another person posted on this forum said the paint bubbled and then their betta got sick.. no way to say for sure if it was really related, but the poster believed it was. That's all I can share.

Since it's topfin they should take it back. I've broughten back many petsmart items back to them without receipt and they gave me store credit. I was usually picking up a different item (usually fish food or plants) so they never minded

so i know this topic is old but i thought i'd let you guys know that the paint on mine has started to bubble a month after i purchased it

my receipt hasn't expired yet - so i can still return this product without them giving me any crap, right?

It's been almost 2 months now, the paint is a bit bubbly in some spots but it's not chipping off, still looks good and the fish are all fine.
