Are they in a bucket/container outside? If they are you can just dump it out and they'll die.

If those really are ball bearings, they are hardened carbon steel and will slowly rust. Is rust toxic? I'd get them out with a magnet.

Rust is toxic, I believe. Move them.

is it OK to fully open a box containing a live betta from shipping within seconds in a very dark room just to check to see if its moving? if possible i'll do it, im a bit paranoid it might be DOA. i plan to acclimate him at home so waiting 30-40 minutes in a 30 celsius metro car with a betta that may or may not be alive is unnerving.

I don't see the problem, but at least wait 10-20 min so the bag settles down, then do everything necessary in a dark room, but make sure you can see, don't want you (and more importantly, the fish ) to fall/trip.

Thank you! I was kinda hoping the answer was "no" because then I'd have a reason not to get more tanks

Aaargh, I can't find them! They're roughly the same size as the grains of sand so a brine shrimp net doesn't work.

Edit: Never mind, I think the algae magnet got most if not all of them. Thank you everyone for your help.

I looked into my prime bottle today when I was using it and I saw a whole bunch of little dark grey specks floating around and gathered on the sides.... O_o Is this normal?
