Are plant weights shrimp safe?
Im rehoming some java fern to a friend, the plants are currently attached to plant weights. I know the tank they are going to contains shrimp. Should i remove the plant weights before i hand them over.
The weights have not caused any problems with fish and snails, but ive never kept shrimp, so im not sure on that.
The packet describes the weights as "lead strips" but it looks more like zinc to me. I would be surprised if lead was legal here? They certainly are for fishing over a certain size. Ive emailed the manufacturer to find out what they actually are.
