I am looking for lots of plant weights. Will stainless steel bolts and fishing line be safe? Do the bolts have sharp edges that might cut cory barbels? Any suggestions for other things to use for weights? What is the best place to buy actual aquarium weights? Thanks in advance for any advice.

Re: "Good idea but would stainless steel nuts change water parameter like Ph and condition?"

------------------------

Me, too. I had heard that ANY metal in fresh or salt water is a no-no. So, now I am confused.
:confused:

I had rusty metal in my tank before, didn't hurt anything but I did remove it as soon as I noticed it. Stainless Steel is perfectly fine to use.
