I would agree with the assertion that plastic plants have a place in the aquarium. I have spent a lot of money in the last year on live plants which were supposedly easy to grow. Only a few actually thrived such as Java fern, amazon sword,val. The rest look great for the a month or two and then slowly but surely disintegrate. I have become disillusioned and fed up with shelling out money for plants, that even with food and light which should nurture them, take their leave. I’ve recently augmented the aquas cape with some plastic plants with very satisfactory results. Fish will seek out a place of refuge and they get that with artificial plants. I also use tall plastic plants to hide heaters and tubing. It doesn’t have to be all or nothing.
Most rigid plastic toys, ornaments and figurines are safe for aquariums as long as they are not painted and do not have any sticker decals on them. Make sure the object is well-cleaned and any stickers or adhesives are completely removed. If you aren’t sure if it is painted or printed, try soaking it in water for awhile, then try to scrape the color off with your fingernail. If it comes off, it isn’t safe for your aquarium. You’ll also want to make sure any small pieces are removed or firmly attached with an adhesive like silicone sealants, and make sure nothing is small enough for your fish to eat.
