Question about parasites

Hi everyone. First post here. So, I just bought a baby Argentine red from underground reptiles. I keep it in a 40gal with a powersun 100w.

I bought an Exoterra that kept hermit crabs from a thrift store. It came with a fake plant and a hide. I washed them, and let them soak in hot tap water then put them in my tegus cage. Do I need to worry about parasites or anything that could come from the hermit crabs?

Thank you

Just as you are supposed to wash your hands with cold water not warm you should freeze anything in question. This kills parasites and is easier than trying to get water hot enough. A minor vinegar water mix will kill most harmful things also much more safe than bleach
