Question is a golf ball fine to use in tank?

Not a used one. I am a golfer and i know a used one even washed with steaming hot water would still be a no no haha. But would be a brand new out of the package ball be ok? I am on a budget and i really gotta stop spending money on fish haha. So i am trying to use things around the house.

Lol I need to stop spending money on fish too. I've spent sooo much it's ridiculous, but I love them. :) I would imagine that it would be fine if it's a brand new one. I'd just let it soak in some water over night just to make sure that the color pigment wouldn't bleed through.

Golfs balls do water log over a period of time. An over night test would not show any results haha. Guess the golf ball idea is fired haha

Oh ok, than I guess it'd be fine.lol I know nothing about golf, but I figured it would have to be fine in water because I've seen people playing in the rain.

They are, but over a long time the water ruins it, so i guess it would be bad for the tank. I wish i has some things to use around the house, but i dont =[ I would try the coffee mug thing but it would crowd the tank i feel

i know soap is taboo for cleaning, but what about using a small plastic tupperware container that has been washed with soap in the past?

I've heard that vinegar and water mixture cleans things nicely but I'm not sure the percentage for each. You can also use bleach and water mixture.

Yup, some people use bleach. I think they use more water than bleach so it's pretty watered down. I have no idea how it works, I've never done it so someone else will have to explain.lol
