Can I use this wood structure in my tank?

Hey guys,

I found this turtle hut that is supposedly okay to use in a dry terrarium or can also be submerged in a tank for fish or..well...turtles!

I was just about to buy it when I realized I had been given one with a tank that was previously used for bearded dragons.

Can I still use it under water if I clean it well? Like boil it several times over?

This is the link to it on the site:
Zoo Med Turtle Hut for Water or Land Turtles at PETCO

and this is what it looks like:

I have one in my 55 gallon that we had got at Petco. I just cleaned it when I got it home and havent had a problem since.

Hmmm, then maybe the one that I have isn't the one in the picture. Because the one I have is definitely wood.

Ya it must be different than. It probably wont sink either so you might want to try the whole boiling and getting the wood water logged so it will stay down. You can always try and get the plastic one lol.

Haha I'm sure I'll get the plastic one. I wouldn't want to run the risk of the other one rotting in my tank.
