Ok so I bought my first piece of driftwood today. Mopani. I misunderstood Byron's comments in other threads and paid more for it because I thought he had a superior opinion of it over Malaysian. Rereading the posts.. it's the other way around I guess. Malaysaian > Mopani
That being said I know many people use Mopani driftwood without a problem. What do I need to do to prepare the wood for my tank.
Alternatively should I see about possibly getting a refund for it and exchange it for Malaysian? Problem that might occur with that idea is there was a small tear in the packaging when we got it. By the time we got it home it wasn't such a small tear anymore.
In the future I'll gladly be buying Malaysian.
