Unhappy New Aquarium Ornament Causing Strange Odor

About a week ago I bought a new cave for my aquarium. It was fine until ich broke out and killed all the fish. I heated the water to 94 degrees and today I was cooling the water because it was safe for some new fish and the cave smelled BAD almost like burnt rubber. I dried it and the smell want away, changed all the water and rinsed everything. Thought everything was okay until I put it back in and it smelled AGAIN. Why is it doing this?

Info about the cave
Material: Polyresin
Sold by Well Gallery
says fish tank safe
no reviews on amazon

I have noticed they all smell.

"I've macrostoma tastes on a veiltail budget. "

If i drew it it'd look like a monkey eating a horsradish on the moon or something

Re: New Aquarium Ornament Causing Strange Odor

In my opinion it is better to have no strange objects in the aquarium. No sunken wrecks, no dinosaurs, No dead skulls. In the corner no dwarfs with long beard and fishing rod.
Only gravel, round stones of non-toxic material, sterile moor wood, beautiful plants. Well and fish.
The other things only take away space and complicate care. Excuse! Only IMO.

If You need a cave, take a half Coconut.

A lot of things I do not know. Learning has no end
