floral wire on cork
Does anyone know if floral wire (the green wire they use in flower
arrangements) is safe to put in a tank? I've used it on topiary and it
works well. I cut little U shaped pins to secure the plants. However, it
does corrode and fall apart after a period of time.
It would work nicely to attach plants to cork in a tank but I don't know
what it is made of or if it would leech something bad into the water. I was
planning to use it on plants that would attach to the cork such that the
breaking down wouldn't be a problem. (bolbitis, java fern, moss, etc)
If this is a problem, which wire do I get? There are multiple mentions of
wire in the archives but I don't remember a specific reference to a type.
I was planning on just using cork tiles as opposed to rough cork. It seems
like after a short period of time, the cork would be obscured anyway, even
Thanks as always.
