You honestly can't say PVC is bad considering you can go into our DIY forum and see how many times people use it in the aquarium and in the plumbing. You can even google aquairum decorations and a vast majority uses PVC. Therefore PVC is not harmful to fish.

How many of those DIY plumbing projects were permitted with the local town and followed up with a building inspection? Many states (although not all) don't permit PVC for water supply lines for the reason noted by the other poster, and some don't permit it for drain lines either. It comes down to risk tolerance for use in an aquarium.
