Sneath posted a topic in DiscussionWho owns an aquarium and understands the adverse effects of metals on fish? A while back I tried making floating chainmaille mines for fish tanks (tethered to the bottom of the tank). I loved the look of Tetra Orb but the biggest problem was that they were usually way too heavy. So, I tried using rubber rings, which was definitely light enough. (not too fond of the look though) But, I was looking online at metals that can be in aquariums without poisoning the fish (fresh & salt) and it was a little hard to find the answers I wanted. I'm assuming bare aluminum, the copper-based metals, and galvy are out, but would TRL anodized aluminum or stainless be safe for fish? In fresh or salt water? I'm down with getting some titanium in my next order if you guys think that would be better.
