I read somewhere that paint on fish accessories can bubble up over time and float in the tank I just bought the Penn Plax Enchanted Castle Aquarium before I read it. Will it be safe? I don't want my little Gyarados to die. :(

I'm not a fan of any painted accessory or decoration in an aquarium. Just keep a close eye on it. If ANYTHING changes, remove it immediately and do a large water change.

I agree with the above. If I do decided to buy any manufactured decor, I do soak it for at least a month in a bucket of old tank water/conditioned water. I check it every few days and see if the paint is bubbling, peeling or flaking. I check to see if it smelling like chemicals as well. If after a month everything is fine, then i add the decor to the tank.
