Bogwood+Plants from creek
Hey everyone, FIRST QUESTION
I just got back from camping over the weekend. While I was there I noticed there was a nice creek nearby so I put my rain boots on and starting searching the creek for varous things for my fishtank. I came upon this nice piece of bogwood with lots of stuff on it from the creek. I was interested so I brought it home and sprayed it off and scrubbed it clean for over an hour to get the loose stuff of of it. I sprayed it ti'll there was nothing visible coming off of it. Than I put it in a big cooler to soak to get the final loose stuff off of it. I've done that a few times and there's nothing coming off of it anymore. It's pretty long so I cant put it in a pot so I think i will boil parts at a time to try to be safe. Am I doing good. Can I even put creek bogwood into my fish tank? NEXT QUESTION
I came but a few plants that were everywhere I figured, what the heck, why not try them in my fish tank. So I got some and when I got home I rinsed them all pretty good and got all the dead leav's off of them and trimmed a few etc...Before I did my gravel vac and water change I put the plants in and nothing came off them so I'm guessing everything is okay with them. Can I even put creek plants in my aquarium? Safe or not.
Please im asking for everyone's Input!!
