Hello I bought some large glass marbles at hobby lobby to decorate the bottom of my freshwater fish tank, the label says they may contain a water soluble surface coating. Is this safe for fish? I also wondered about the marbles fading but it’s not saltwater. Thanks

Most novice fish owners begin with a freshwater bowl or other types of beginner fish tanks. A desktop aquarium kit complete with a freshwater fish tank, filter, filter cartridge, lighted hood, water conditioner, and fish food is the perfect way to get started as an aquarist. While these kits contain the basic accessories most beginner fish tanks need, there is more fun to be had in choosing your own plants, rocks, colored substrates and decorative ornaments. There are saltwater aquariums that have been specifically designed for display on shelves, while some are equipped with reversible backgrounds to change with your mood or home décor. There are even octagon-shaped fish tanks that act as unique tables, hold up to 28-gallons of water, and never fail as an interesting conversation piece for entertaining guests.

Here is the slide show video about Saltwater Fish Tank Decoration Ideas, could help you in make decision before you have an aquarium.
Check this link for complete information..Some backstory: I'm on the level of a novice when it comes to aquariums. My fiance, on the other hand, is all about his saltwater aquarium. I believe he has a 75 gallon tank (I never can remember the actual size of the tank) with 6 fish, a few anemone and some coral. He's very disciplined about checking the levels of pH and minerals in the water (although I'm sure you need to be to keep the fish and marine life thriving) and has been in the saltwater game for four or five years. Anyway, Valentine's day is coming up, and I'd love to sculpt some kind of decoration for his tank. However, I have no idea whether or not this is feasible for a saltwater tank since (from what I've read) there can be issues with using materials like craft store clay or concrete leaching harmful things into the water.You have the option of creating two types of systems, a fish only system or reef tank system and this decision will impact the decoration of your tank. You must also take into consideration the substrate. While a substrate is not required in a saltwater tank, and some experts say that it will only trap waste and cause the nitrate level to rise, it does provide a certain esthetic appeal.

A fish only system basically consists of fish and not much else. The basic fish-only aquarium set-up usually consists of the tank, filter and lighting. This type of tank contains fish with possibly a little live rock, but no living corals or other invertebrates. You may include some dead coral living rock, inorganic rocks, imitation coral and seashells to dress it up a bit.

Coral and rock can be arranged to simulate a natural environment and include ample hiding areas, ledges, and crevices for the aquarium fish. Placement of the rock and coral should not be so complex that it will be difficult to remove uneaten food or debris during maintenance.

A reef tank consists of fish, corals, invertebrates and other organisms that live in a carefully balanced environment. For example, fish are selected for compatibility not just with each other, but with corals and invertebrates as well (i.e., fish are chosen that will not eat other desirable organisms in the tank). Reef aquariums are not for everyone; they are expensive to set up, furnish, populate and maintain. They are the most time-consuming, type marine systems you can have.
Without aquarium decorations, your tank is just a bowl with fish in it. Decorations and backgrounds give it life and personality. With all the plants, rocks, and figurines to pick from, you can truly make your aquarium unique. If you are just starting out, you'll want to get a wide selection of unique items for your tank. Driftwood, plants, rocks, aquarium substrate, marbles, fish tank backgrounds and ornaments, Pet Mountain has everything you can think of for your aquarium. Some of the larger, saltwater or reef tanks have entire cities built at the bottom of their tanks! With the larger 100 gallon or bigger tanks, you can even put large rocks and coral in there to give it that ocean floor look.

For the brand new fish enthusiast, you can easily start small and just get a few plants and an ornament or two. Popular ones include the shipwreck and pirate with a pot of gold. Some people like to match the color of rock with the colors of the fish you have. There are all kinds of ideas you can use for your aquarium decorations.
