New Balinese lantern smells chemically!
I just bought a Top Fin fake lantern to help my new catfish hide in. It smelled chemically after I rinsed it off, so I boiled it for a few minutes. Still smells like chemicals, like styrofoam. Can this be safe for my tank???
If it's a strong smell, I would take it back to the store. Wouldn't want to risk hurting the fish!
Topfin has a BAD rep for decor, id remove it asap. Its been anywhere from the paint leaching to chems killing all the tank inhabitants.
Thanks for helping! What companies sell good decor? I'll take this one back tomorrow:-(
I only really know the topfin has bad rep. I use a lot of tetra.
