one thing ive heard of you could try is putting the wood in a large container and pouring boiling hot water on it and let it sit for a while, it'll help open the wood fiber and let water in it easier. ive never tried it but doin some google search some people have done it with good results.

If your having a lot of problems you can get a piece of slate and drill a small hole through it and use a stainless steel screw and screw the wood to the slate. Put the slate down first and cover it with the rocks or sand.

It is to the point where i took the rocks off of the top and just kind of place them on the base of it. I am happy with it like this for now

right now i have 7 red eye tetras, 7 zebra danios, 3 yoyo loaches, 2 black mollies, some ghost shrimp, and some snails. I am looking to get my danios out of there to get some more tetras in there. I am thinking either red/blue Columbian tetras, black skirt tetras, or serpae tetras. I would probably get about 7 of whatever i get. Whatever i get i want it to be a schooling fish.
