Who uses Vibran-Sea (blue ribben) silk plants?

Who has any of these in their tank? How long? How many have never had a sick fish? How many have got a mysterious illness at some point. Pretty sure these plants are killing my bettas.. Three sets from three sellers (different kinds) and the same result.. tank starts smelling like nasty plastic the longer they're in there.. fish lose color, become listless and start twitching after maybe 2-4 days. 10minutes in fresh water and ALL color returned. It was a startling discovery.

I think I just had a run of really bad luck. The glue at the bottom is a different color.. wonder if someone tried to touch up the original 3 i got :\ I tossed the plants and I'm using a different vibran sea and he seems mostly ok.. still clamped off and on but poop is normal and he eats ok so going to give him a week and see how it goes.

I found a few more on petstore.com I'm going to get to spruce up his tank. Right now all he has is a fountain fern and I think he may be a little stressed due to lack of foliage in the larger space..
