Decoration question

I was at my local Petco yesterday picking up some more algae wafers for my cories and scoping out replacement lighting. I came across some really nice log hidey-hole decorations for reptiles on clearance for $3. These are usually $17, so naturally I had to pluck one up, as I am planning to get a leopard gecko in the near future.

Now here's the question. Would it be safe to put this in my aquarium? It's about 10x4 inches, so it would make a great hiding place for larger fish. It's from the brand Kritterz if you can't read the tag in the photo. I'm assuming that being safe for reptiles, it should be safe for aquariums, but I wanted to ask here before I put it in. Will it be fine, or should I keep it in reserve for the gecko?

Thanks a lot.

Ah, just found the thing on the petco website.

"Our Hollow Hideaways are the perfect retreat for small animals, reptiles, amphibians, and fish. Made of pet safe, easy to clean resin with realistic, hand painted details."

I guess that answers my question. What do you guys think?

I had the same question when I was trying to find something for my 28. I said screw it and put it in. Everything has been ok for months now.


And when I did ask, the lady said no, because it had small holes the fish could get stuck in

I would go ahead and use it if the company says it can be for fish, just be sure to rinse it in warm water or even let it soak for a little bit. You could monitor your water parameters before & after adding it to be extra safe. It is a nice looking decoration and I bet your fish will be very happy with it. :)
