Stainless Steel w/ shrimp

I would like to use this large stainless steel bolt and nuts to hold down some wood until it's water logged in my 10G shrimp tank. It would be ok to use, wouldn't it?

If it is stainless steel and free of oil you should be fine!

Thank you My buddy had 1500LBS of SS bolts/bracket left over from a job site and he was going to recycle them so I grabbed some. All of it was new/never used!

I'm going to say it's not ok to put that much stainless steel in a 10G. Within one day 1 shrimp was upside down moving its feet/twitching. I moved it to my 20G and it was healthy within 4hrs. So I'm thinking maybe that shrimp was just unhealthy or something... nope another shrimp doing the same thing. I put that one in the 20G and it went back to normal. Now I just found a dead shrimp in the 10G so I took the ss bolt out of the 10G and did a 50% water change. Hopefully the rest will be ok.

Might be the wood or maybe the bolt/nut is only stainless coated.

The wood is fine. I had it in my tank with shrimp before for a couple of months. The bolt is a high quality solid ss bolt.
