just wondering, back in he spring when I purchased my tank from someone she had it full pack, there was 4 pieces of drift wood. I took 2 out when I moved and decided recently to put those 2 in my new tank. one of them the water soaked in and it's staying at the bottom of the tank, the other still hasn't budged from the top..my question is, how long will it take before it actually soaks the water enough to go down ?? is there something I could do for it to go down
There are several different things you can do. You could take it out put it in a bucket with water and put rocks on top of it for a couple of days or until it stays down by itself. Another thing is take it out let it dry then silicone a piece of slate to the bottom side of the piece. Let it dry then put it in the tank. Should not float that way. Tie it down to a rock in the tank. That works too. As far as how long does it take. It depends on the type of wood. Some take longer then others to become water-logged and sink some not so long.
