Driftwood I found: should I use it?
Hey, I found some driftwood in a bog behind my grandparents' house, and it looks good to use in an aquarium. I'll post pictures later. I have 3 pieces, and I scrubbed one down really well today. It just has a little grit left and I think a pressure washer or the equivalent should get that off. I know all about boiling it (or pouring boiling water on it) to kill germs and soaking it to remove tannins, so should I use it? One piece might be too big for my new 29 gallon, but the other two will definitely fit. Should I do anything special with them? I won't use bleach. Chemicals and fish don't mix (water conditioner excluded)
