    Is it detrimental to have lead in your tank? I am thinking of tying up the noori and mussel onto a sinker when i put it in my tank as i dont have a piece of LR ATM and the clip that i have is always moving around due to the flow in the tank? would it be bad for anything?

    Do you have a magnet cleaner. Sometimes I use this as my nori clip.

    As far as I know a sinker is not a good idea. Cant you break off a little piece of live rock and just attach nori with elastic bands.

    Lead is a toxic heavy metal.
    Dont even think of putting it in your tank
