Exclamation Tank cycle damaging Petsmart decorations?

I've got several decorations that my daughter picked out but now they seem to be blistering. Is it the decoration itself, or would the ammonia/cycling process be damaging them?

I was actually going to say the white stains are caused by hard water. 8.0 PH is semi hard.. But I don't have any issues with the paint on my ornaments and my PH is 7.5.. The only issue I had with paint was the paint peeling off over time. Those ornaments look like they are using a type of glossy paint. Glossy paint can bubble like that... its the same as if you paint your wall in the house and pour water on it if it gets under it it will bubble... The normal Ornaments like the volcano's and coral looking stuff those use a better type of dry paint.
