As long as you do not have fish that pick at them, they should do fine.
Some of my fish would just not leave them alone, Made a real mess.
The ones I put in "good" tanks are doing fine, the others I put back together with rubberbands and placed in fish friendly tanks and they seem to be doing fine.
Just a word of caution, if they start falling apart use fishing string or rubberbands to put them back together, otherwise they can make a big mess and try to clog your filter.
