the blue plastic ones with the metal sealed tops... for keeping cooler bags for picnics cool..

now i suspect they are filled with something other than water..

so if they were to leak then i suppose it would be bad news for the tank.

but do people use them in aquariums without an outer plastic wrap??

are they safe?

For the heck of it just in case I'd put them in a zip lock bag if you decide to float one in a tank.
agreed....but i thought somone might say they just throw them in as is without a hitch because of all the food safety standards...but i think aquarium standards are a whole lot higher. :wink:

this is just planB while im away on holiday and we get a heatwave ...although to be honest we live in one 24/7 but it might get even hotter ..god forbid. :roll:
I'd definitely put them in a zip lock bag if I were to use them. When I have needed to cool a tank off I've just used real ice cubes in a bag or a frozen water bottle though.
