Metal Bands
 
Do the metal bands they wrap the stems of plants with hurt fish? I bought some plants over the weekend and would like to keep the bands on them if I can. These bands are very soft and bend easily.

Thanks
Steve

Should not hurt the fish. Most are not lead anymore anyway. I would remove them though for the plants sake because they can restirct growth and cut into the stems as the plant grows.
