Rep: FelipeNN is an unknown quantity at this point
Default Melamine Sponge safety

Today there are several aquarium suppliers selling melamine sponges (sometimes called the "Magic Eraser") to clean algae from aquariums.
It is said to be perfectly safe for fishes and other invertebrates.
Anyone knows if it is safe for amphibians?
I've used it some times on my Xenopus tank, as they are sturdier animals, with no problem, but haven't proceed yet to use it on the salamander/newt aquariums... anyone have any experience with that?
Thank you
