I LOVE MY TANK NOW!! Some of you may remember me saying how I dis liked my tank but now i just love it. I'm getting a picture taken in a few minutes. Make way for a new thread under Freshwater MEDIA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ahh. Ok. Usually people like to boil the wood in water so that it sinks easier and to kill off any bacteria. If you can't, pour some boiling water over it.

Yeah, it will overtime. Can't really say how long. I know boiling the wood soaks it easier.

Hi, I also like a tank full of wood, just remember though that a piece of bogwood probably still has tannins in it that will turn your water slightly brown, not harmful to fish though. If you mind the cloration, then soak your piece of wood in chlorine based bleach for a week, then rinse it out and soak in clear water for another week changing the water every other day, you could even add declorinator to you final rinse. Being kept under water will also help it stay down in your tank.
