Can i put a cream resin buddha statue in a tropical aquarium?

I’m setting up a tropical aquarium like this

I can’t find a uk pet store that sells buddha ornaments so i thought that since most aquarium ornaments are made of resin i could just buy any resin buddha ornament and put it in the tank? I’ve found a white buddha on ebay which is listed as being made out of cream resin, if i put it in the tank will it harm the fish?


  • Most aquarium ornaments are made from polypropylene.

    Are you willing to do the vinegar test? If it’s still in one piece after a week in vinegar then presume it’s safe after rinsing. If it isn’t you have wasted your money.

  • Anything that is not natural to tropical fish environments should not be put in with them. I have a Buddah in my garden but i would not endanger tropical fish with it.

  • You shouldn’t. It could start to come apart and harm your fish. I would try getting one online or personal message the guy on youtube and see where he got his.
    Hope this helps! Good Luck!
