Driftwood from the ocean.
I found a nice piece of wood from the ocean and was wondering if after its been rinsed and soaked in freshwater, would it be ok for a freshwater aquarium?
One problem is the salt the wood has taken up. Soaking and boiling might not rid the wood of all of it, and freshwater fish can be affected. I personally would not use it.

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
