Any ornament or cave that wasn't specifically made to be aquarium safe, I wouldn't take a chance with.

hhhmmm....all seems to be well with it so far. Last night the juvies were pretty mad their dinner was late. Water levels are all in line this morning. Every now n then an angel goes into the igloo to poke at the hornwort that is anchored to the igloo, but they usually find their way out easily.
