Disinfecting tank decorations?


Recommended Posts

Hi all!

This is probably one of the first times I've ever put decorations in my tank... I went out and got a decoration today for my new baby LT to hide inside :). I was just wondering: Do I have to sterilize the decoration before adding to the tank? I also noticed that most decorations with hidey holes had sharpish edges on the inside. Should I file them down? Thanks guys!

If you're really paranoid you could sterilise it with some bleach, but considering these decorations have never come into contact with fish, there's really no need. I'd just give it a rinse in some dechlorinated water beforehand. :)
