Paint coming off tank decoration
I have a 29g tank which I'm currently doing a fishless cycle on. It's actually been running for four months, but I accidentally killed the bacteria with too much ammonia so I'm starting over. I have a large sunken ship decoration and some fake plants in the tank. Yesterday, I noticed that it looked like some of the paint had come off part of the ship decoration. I put my hand in there and rubbed it, and some more came off. My question is, should I take it out or will it be safe for my future fish if I leave it in? Also, will the paint that already came off be a problem when I eventually put fish in the tank?
