  • Rust Effects on a closed system.

    I was just curious, what would rust do in our systems or is this still unknown?

    I've got rust in the system by various means over the years, never noticed a negative effect, although there may have been one I don't know.
    My snippers I use for cutting frags are totally rusted out, recently a guy came to buy a frag & I cut it in front of him with the rusty snips, he freaked. But I just told him I've never had a bad effect & said the frag was guaranteed, heard back later everything was fine.

        Sean... where do you suspect/expect the rust to come from?

          Oh, I was just curious, about the use of tweezers and cutters in the tank that are metal and eventually rust.

          Thats all

              Using a rusty tool around the tank every now and then should not cause a problem, however a piece of metal rusting in the tank will give you algae problems.

                  Titanium surgery tools would be best, not sure where to get those though

                  I'm sure they have some good bone snipping pliers perfect for fragging.

                      I agree with Timon, I've always used rusted tools[it happens] w/o any consequences. Bob
