Default WalMart Polyester Fiberfil safe?

I just bought a $1.99 bag of WalMart Polyester fiberfil to use as filter floss in my Magnum 350. I'm just double checking to make sure I got the right stuff.

It says it's flamable. I understand the flame retardant stuff is no good and not aquarium safe.

Is there any thing else I should look out for? Thanks!

I've used it before with no problems..... guess just make sure its 100% polyester and you should be good to go.

I use the polyester quilt batting from walmart on all my tanks and it works great. Like you said, just stay away from anything with a flame retardant in it.

As long as it is hyper-allergenic it should be fine. I've used the Poly-fil & Morning Glory brands from Walmart.
