Hey Skye I have never used the krylon fusion and was wondering if it has any odor to and which type do you use to spray on the decorations ? I was thinking of trying some...Thanks.

I'm sure he might of gotten himself out since he got in but I'm not taking that chance.

I'm thinking of purchasing this one: http://www.drsfostersmith.com/produc...6&pcatid=23736 or one like I had before: http://www.drsfostersmith.com/produc...21&pcatid=3921

But I'll stay far away from the top one.
I had the bottom one. Haven't had any problems with it, but it took more time to measure the temp than other thermometers I've had. I mean, say If the temp on my current thermometer take maybe ten seconds to settle down completely, this one took about 20-30.

It happened to me, but with a thermometer with a red liquid inside. I went to the store I bought it in and they said it is especially made to not harm the fish, and Felix lived to tell the tale . It looks like this if you're interested: http://www.midwestsupplies.com/media...rmometer_1.jpg

I'm glad that Felix is okay. I think that happened the day I joined the site and I was so worried about being able to keep my betta alive and swimming!

I used the clear coat. IF it works there is no smell after soaking (which is the case on my roman ruins that I bought from petco.)


one coating on the ruins, and there's no more paint smell when they were soaked, I let it dry for 2 days just to be sure.

on that castle, 3 coatings hasn't helped at all.

this is the paint I used. there's other krylon fusion clear coats (that would probably work better), but this is the one my fiance bought.

I am filling the interiors of some my cavernous ornaments that smell like paint with sand and sealing it in with AQ silicone. This is where the paint smell is coming from with my ornaments. I actually soaked multiple ornaments and found it's a widespread problem if you smell the inside you will smell paint.

yea, and it's almost impossible to coat the entire inside with that paint. That's a really good idea, Jadablu

Has anyone used this? I have it in my tank, but I'm worried because the paint *might* be fading.. searched it up, it said it was non-toxic. Now I'm wondering if it might be metal, like so many ornaments.. http://www.walmart.ca/en/ip/medium-a...-infor-reviews
