    Does anyone know if painted pottery (like the kind of stuff you paint yourself and pick up a few days later) is safe for aquariums?

    I don't really know the answer, but just to clarify I assume that the reason you pick it up a few days later is because it get fired in a kiln. If so, it would be considered glazed pottery.

    I'm thinking it should be okay. If it was bisque ware that was painted, but not fired again I would be leery of using that, since the paint could come off.

    But you may want to wait for someone with more knowledge to come along and answer.
