Depends on who made it, and when it was made. It could be old stock that was made correctly. The stuff that is hitting the shelves now is all junk. You might find one or two that won't do it, but I still think it is old stock.
I had a buddah that was suppose to be resin, no paint, and it did the same thing as the painted decorations.

Like Setangha said, it's just not worth it to take the chance.

A little late to post, but I did end up returning these two "trees" in Flareon's tank a few weeks ago, because the big one had started to peel. I replaced everything plastic for silk plants, and now his fins are finally healing. They kept getting torn on the sharp plastic flowers, it just wasn't worth it. I left two of the little flowers (which had fallen off the tree before I returned it) floating around on top the water, because Flareon liked to build nests around them. But then I noticed a few days ago that the top of his water had a weird whitish swirly film on top. I took out the flowers and within an hour the water was back to normal. No idea what that was...

Anyway, this is his new tank! All silk. I also built him two caves out of river rocks which aren't in the picture.

Oh I like your tank much better now.
Why is it people don't want to believe us about these decorations they are selling now?

So I found today that my betta had to rips in his fins! :C All of his plants are silk except for this ornament



The leaves/plants aren't the problem. On the inside hole where he swims through there was a small sharp part that was sticking out, it was sharp enough to cut myself! ;n; If you buy this PLEASE check the openings!!!!

Think of how you can see the oil and gasoline streaks in the water that's collected on the street after it rains. It looked like that. Yuck! I'm in the process of getting the materials to make a new "floating log" out of PVC pipe and suction cups.

This turtle ornament from Petsmart:

This lasted about three months. I was hopeful that it might not come up with any problems, but sadly the paint started chipping, so into the trash it went. It's a shame. It was such a cute ornament.
I put one of these in his tank today and earlier posted pics of Bubblo and his log; glad I saw this, and a post about the sinkable one. It is now out of the tank, and Bubblo seems to be looking for it..he has been in and out of it all day long. The gal at the Pet Store told me it was safe for my betta
