Is it best to put te whole thing in there or break it??? I want to make sure everyone in my tank will be safe....any advice??
Boiling the pot or pouring very hot water water over it for a (5-10) should work. A good scrub afterwards would help as well (make sure to not use soap).
You can break it or put it in whole; whatever you prefer. If you break it, be sure there are no sharp edges that could harm your fish.
