Hi lads and ladies

I was just wondering if anyone here uses tiles that have been cut in there tanks. I use to make caves and other things out of them using pvc pipes cut in half and also ceramic pots broken in half. My problem is i went to get a tile cutter to do this again and was warned that they tiles will leach toxins. Does anyone know whether this is true. I was told that most tiles are not designed to be submersed in water. But aren't they ceramic??

Thanks for the reply mate. have any of your tiles been cut or were they all "sealed" so to speak. Doesn't really make sense as the back isn't really sealed anyway.

a lot of ppl use unglazed/broken ceramic pots, i know of ppl that make narrow caves out of tiles, spawning poles for discus/angels from baked clay, no known problems thus far. just be sure to smooth the razor sharp edge off the cut
