    I removed 16 anubis plants from my tank as i am selling them and to my surprise i found a half dollar size, solid piece of iron. Im assuming this is bad....
    Should i be worried???

    Does this mean i am not delivering enough iron to my plants?

    If that worried me it would be because I would think it fell off of some piece of equipment, which would then be lacking a part. The iron we put in the tank is far too dilute and chemically combined for it to ever form chunks of iron in the tank. Even if it did, that iron would not harm anything.

    Well its highly irregular so i doubt it fell off anything. On top of that i dont have very many things in my tank for it to fall off from. It must just be a really old piece that accumulated over the years. Thanks for the safety check.
