  1. (Is this the correct forum?) I have an Art-Deco Frankoma statue of a woman. Standard red clay pottery, green and brown glazes. She's missing a lower leg, but she's still lovely. She'd look great in my 45 gallon, covered in algae, surrounded by river rocks and moss balls. https://www.google.com/search?q=frankoma+naked+lady&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ei=Dd7AUs6QLcrCyQGI0oCQDQ&ved=0CAcQ_AUoAQ&biw=1366&bih=642#q=frankoma+naked+flapper+lady&tbm=isch&facrc=_&imgdii=_&imgrc=TuSUMN348Ur3ZM%3A%3BqSHMdXKPfFNqiM%3Bhttp%253A%252F%252Fthumbs4.ebaystatic.com%252Fd%252Fl225%252Fm%252Fm768-cHYRlMN14ANZXgGJ2g.jpg%3Bhttp%253A%252F%252Fwww.ebay.com%252Fsch%252Fi.html%253F_kw%253Ddancer%252Bfan%3B225%3B201 The spaces between her legs and arms are too small for my fish to get stuck in. I have already searched Frankoma and other pottery forums about food safety, and they seem to agree that even the pre-2000 Frankoma pieces (which this one certainly is) that contain lead ARE FOOD SAFE, so long as they're NOT HEATED. This includes the non-food ware pieces, because the glazes aren't different. So, this statue may or may not contain lead. But it's supposed to be food safe regardless, so long as it's not heated. 1) Is it safe in an aquarium that reaches no more than 75 degrees Fahrenheit? 2) Can I safely neutralize her hollowness (against floating and anaerobic bacteria) by filling her with dechlorinated water, and covering the holes with little pieces of plastic sheeting (from my water-changer packaging) using silicone aquarium sealant? 3) Will this statue affect the pH? Thanks!
