Silk Plant Dyes

I purchased several silk plants the other day and before I went to add them to the new 10gal () I rinsed them off and one filled my sink with green dye...I rinsed it til it ran clear for a few minutes, but I'm still hesitant to put it in...Is it fine or should I try something to get rid of the excess dyes?

That's odd...never happened to me before. I'd be cautious too. Did you get aquarium silk plants, or from a craft store or something?

That is really weird, I've never had that happen before. I personally wouldn't put it in the tank, but that's just me. I'd constantly be worried.

The one that bled green dye I wouldn't use.

Maybe you can soak it for a day or so and see if it bleeds over time. If it doesn't, try putting it in. If it does, toss it.

Personally, I'd err on the side of safety and throw it away. Must be defective because I've never had that happen before.
