I have no experience whatsoever doing this type of background, so take my advice with a grain of salt, but I read that you have to leach the chemicals out? That basically you fill the tank and let it sit for several weeks doing large frequent water changes until all the chemical has been leached from the material. But again, I'm not sure, so you might want to check that with someone else.
