Magic Water Crystals?
You know...water crystals...you know? those colorful balls that absorb a bunch of water and go from tiny to big?
Are those OK for fish?
I would try and find out what is in them first.
I have a feeling they might contain toxic elements not suitable for aquariums.
Never heard of them before, cant help ypu sorry
It seems to be the same stuff they use to pack the aquatic plants at petsmart, just colorful and round instead of odd shapped...but i'm not sure... :|
I wouldnt trust it considering that if it expands with wtare it is probably got some chemicals in it. just dont use
I read that some of them can be toxic and even those that are not say to not put in aquariums it can be harmful to animals and they also mentioned that they float so my guess its not a good idea for a substrate.
Late to the show but with out knowing exactly what they are I'm thinking they are the same stuff they put in diapers for absorbancy, also the same stuff high school chemistry teachers love to use in class as a demonstration. In which case it is not safe at all, main factor being they are soft which means inhabitants may eat parts of them plus over time they will degrade in a water environment.
