I was looking at my cycling tank, and something caught my eye. I looked over, and holy crap, there's metal poking out of the silk ivy stem! *headesk* I've had these in an aquarium before, and everthing's been fine. I can't believe I missed that they had metal in them! I looked over them a lot of times before I used them in the first tank, and was postive it was just plastic. Good gosh, what if they were the cause of Puffy dying? Argh >.< They haven't rusted yet, so I'm guessing it's stainless steel but I should take them out.
But, if I take them out, I can kiss the cover and suitability as a sorority good bye, which is bad because I'm adopting four girls really
soon! So, should I take them out? If yes, then what should I do about getting more cover in the tank? I'm pretty much broke, so more live plants or even different silk plants are not an option. :(
