DIY divider question

I went and bought a mesh sheet of plastic, but do i have to do anything to it before i put it in the tank? im just worried about ammonia in the plastic, etc.

I would give it a good wash and scrub in hot water, but don't use soap. Just rinse really well, and if you have any concerns, let it sit overnight (or longer) in a tub of water to let any bad things in it leech out.

New mesh has never risen my ammonia levels.
Just the rinse should do.
