Putting new tank decoration in water

I just purchased a new tank decor for the tetra's to have some hiding places. It is just a treasure chest with holes to go in and out. Is there anything I need to do or can I just put it in the tank?

is it plastic??

you should be fine, just give it a quick rinse....if it was bought at somewhere like PetCo or something, most of that stuff is aquarium safe...

i would give it a good rinse first....its not like a piece of driftwood where you need to soak it to help unleash some of the tannins....or a rock where you need to monitor any pH shift which might occur....

Agreed. Just a quick rinse and pop it in there.
