metal in decor

I discovered rust in my Zoo Med betta hammock and removed the wire yesterday. I also pulled the wires from my two Zoo Med bamboos yesterday (one had been taken out a couple weeks ago when I found a rust spot, the other did not seem to have rusted yet. I am wondering if the persistent fin issues Odysseus has been having are being caused or exacerbated by rust in the water. Does anyone know if the leaf hammock can be put back into use after removing the wire after it rusted?

In light of all these Penn Plax metal discoveries, has anyone found their small Buddha head to have rust issues? I spoke to a Penn Plax associate who happened to be at my LFS for a 30 year celebration and he said the buddha head is completely non-toxic, even if the paint chips. I also have PetsMart's dark brown elephant (not sure who makes it, but Penn Plax seems likely, since they make a lot of cool decorations), which has a few small chips on it where I had to cut off sharp edges. Anyone know if that is safe?

Yeah all the Zoo med stuff has wires.

After you remove the metal and clean off all the rust you can put it back in

I didn't know it had to do with air. I always have to bury it in gravel.

Nope, I take that back. I tried the magnet again and it DID attach (just barely) to
the very tips of the green spikes on the top. Makes me sad. He loved swimming through all those windows.

The green spikes on top have the metal wire structure, not sure about the rest of the decoration. I'm now wanting to phase out all decor except for terra cotta pots and silk plants... Too bad, since my CT is blind and is becoming familiar with his surroundings. (At least I have an abundance of silk plants - I went a little overboard on Petco.com lol.)

No. I need to start a change.org petition against ornaments that contain metal >:/ I'm sure you would all help get plenty of signatures! :)
