Besides copper....Other bad metals?

Out of curiousity, are there other metals that are bad for inverts?

Stainless Steel?

I'm in the heat exchanger business and i'd like to use a nickel brazed unit. If not, then I'll have to try and get my hands on a completely titanium unit.


If consequence dictate my course of action, then it doesn't matter what's right, it's only wrong if you get caught.....

To my knowledge the only metal considered safe for a SW aquarium is titanium.
