Dollhouse Furniture inside an Aquarium

I bought plastic furniture (doll house) for a fish aquarium but I am afraid it might be TOXIC for the fish. Does anyone have any advice on how to seal the plastic or what else to do? HELP

TBH... I personally wouldn't worry about it.

However, a spray polyurethane coating should do the trick.

If it is doll house furniture for a child's toy than it should be fine to put in a tank. You can do what the previous poster said and cover it with clear polyurethane or clear acrylic paint. Just let it dry for at least three days so that it sets up all the way. It may feel dry but it takes it a few days to really cure. It would be interesting to see the tank when you set it up.

I agree if you want to be extra safe just use a polyurethane coat, but it should be fine.
