+1 to Mike.
It's too bad if they have changed the quality of those floating logs, because they are very nice. It is true that the paint will peel to a degree, but I only ever noticed it when washing the log during a water change (no paint flakes in the tank).
I got one when (I think) they were a brand new item.
I put it in my betta's tank, where it remained, with him, until he died more than 5 years later. It was his favorite décor piece! In fact, my avatar picture is him inside that log last August (he died in March of this year).
