Questions & Answers for Penn Plax Penn Plax SpongeBob Squarepants Pineapple House with Swim Holes Aquatic Ornament

Question

How do I prepare my fish tank ornament?

http://www.petco.com/product/114874/Penn-Plax-SpongeBob-Squarepants-Pineapple-House-with-Swim-Holes-Aquatic-Ornament.aspx?CoreCat=OnSiteSearch
I just bought this spongebob pineapple fish tank ornament. I've noticed that the glue on the inside is a rough around the windows on the inside and other places. I have a double finned half moon betta fish and I don't want his fins to snag.
If I sand the glue down, will that mess up the paint or anything and disturb the water in the tank?
Also. How should I clean the ornament before placing it in the tank?

answer 1
Before buying any decor, I check for jagged edges. If there are some, I don't buy the item. You could sand it smooth with a small metal file (like a fingernail file) but I don't know of any way to repaint them to get the color back that wouldn't harm the fish. My recommendation is just take the item back to the store and look for something else or another pineapple that is smooth all around.

I would try to scrape off as much as you can and sanitize it with hot water. Try scrubbing it with pumice. Just remember NOT to use soap.
