Bobber

In my fishtank i was wondering if i could put in a plastic bobber. im not sure if it is ok to put in a plastic bobber into my tank or not. i dont want to poison my fish with anything. it is just a classic red and white bobber that i am going to sink in my tank. wondering if that would be safe. thanks

Try and remove the metal from it, if it has any. Other than that, give it a good wash possibly in vinegar and or a bleach solution to be on the safe side and I think it should be fine.

10g Fry / Hospital / QT tank (as needed)

75g Saltwater Reef, Ocellaris Clownfish, Lyretail Antias (baby), Lemon damsel, Longtail Fairy Wrasse, purple dottyback, snails, crabs and a few LPS corals.

220g Still sitting empty (come on Lottery I need the numbers to come up!)

Over time it will rust and add toxins to the water that you do not want in the tank.

It is best to remove as much metal as you can.
