Whats best method for cleaning this as in making sure they are tank safe?
They are silk plants for the Aquaria and i was thinking of the cichlid tank do they need to be boiled first or something else?

Definately do not boil them, i'm sure it would melt them... even if the silk part survives, there are plastic "stems" on most of them. Also, I'm sure bleach would discolor them... sooo... hot water from the tap?
Are these made specifically for aquariums? Were they in a different tank and you just want to clean them?

i think i rinsed mine years ago. They may have been taken directly from the bag they came in. I take them in and out of a tank as the mood hits me. All I ever do is rinse them before placing them back in the tank.
