What type of metal is on a hair bobble?

I ask because I just spent half my life trying to tie an anubia to a rock using one of these and then realised that metal and fish tanks really don't mix well, I tell you I dont make life easy for myself haha

I'm not positive but any hair tie type thing that I've ever left in the shower left rust marks eventually.

Here in the US they sell those without metal...like this http://workitmom.com/bloggers/milkan...9/hairties.jpg
They're what I use in my hair, not the ones with metal because if I go to the beach they rust :/
You could also use a plain old rubber band if you just rinse them before hand.

Hair bobble, I love that!! No one says that in the US. we just say Hair tie. LOL

I wouldn't risk it with the metal. Maybe a a rubber band..
