Skull Gazer Update:

The slime coat thing on the skull is slowly coming back. I'm dissapointed. Overall I love the skull (the look of it, the size, and how it's smooth) so I'm kinda upset. Now I have to buy one from another brand online and ship it to me. Ugh, I'm on a very limited budget, Penn Plax, but you probably don't care.

What's dangerous about the pineapple? I really wanted this, but I didn't buy it because I thought it was too expensive, now I'm glad I didn't. I was going to try to find it cheaper online, but I won't now.

It used to contain metal. I don't know if they've changed it (I'd heard that maybe they have).

I wonder if they have, on the petco website it says "Made of non-toxic, fish-safe materials and colors". It's on sale, but I still don't know if I should chance it. I just bought a new tank and I need more decor though.

Also, my other tank has the hammock and I haven't had an issue, I just bought a new one and it clearly has no metal anywhere, only plastic, even where the suction cup attaches. It seems flimsier than the other one, I wonder if zoo med changed this item too.

I have this same ornament, and mine doesn't smell like paint at all. Kind of weird there. I've had it for several months now too.

I just bought this last week, they may've change something, or it's a bad batch.

I don't understand why you'd place an ornament in a hydrogen peroxide bath... Are you testing to see if the ornament would get oxidized? Or perhaps to clean it? I feel like that wouldn't be safe to put into a tank. After it's been placed in the bath, a layer of coating may get stripped exposing toxins or paint. Am I being too paranoid?

Yes it goes away, just double the curing time of the paint/clearcoat, if you really want to you can let it cure then let it soak in a bucketof declorinated water for a few days
