Fake Flowers For Aquarium?

I was wondering if fake silk flowers would be okay to put in a fish tank. I've heard they're fine for reptiles and amphibians, and I think they'd look nice in a tank and give it a unique look. However it's totally understandable if I can't use them--I'm not dead set on the idea, just thought I'd look into it more.
(Not sure if it matters, but I'll be setting up a 20 gallon long with 6 kuhlI loaches and one betta.)

I just googled it and it sounds like if they are silk, not plastic they should be fine. Just make sure there isn't glitter on them or wires wrapped around the stems. It could rust.

They do make silk plants specifically for aquariums so my guess would be that there ok.

That being said there may be glue,dye , or foreign metal that may be hazardous to our wet pets. Personally I wouldn't chance it.
