Aquarium safe?


I am currently attempting to diy a 10 gallon tank divider and a java fern wall. I was wondering if anyone knew if Darice mesh and duPont 66 nylon cable ties are aquarium safe.

Thanks ahead of time .

Darice mesh - is that the same stuff used for cross stitch? (often referred to as plastic canvas)

If so, it should be fine, it's been in use in a lot of DIY setups for decades.

Nylon is usually fine too, and plenty of people use zipties, which I imagine are pretty similar.

Yes, I've used both those products in my tanks without any issues.
