Driftwood and pH
Ok, I've searched through the forum and can't find an answer to my question. I know driftwood will lower the pH in my tank, but how long is this effective? Will it continue to lower pH two years from now or only as long as the tannins are in the water? Just a curiosity question. Thanks!
As long as there are tannins in your tank, the pH will remain low. The tannins are gradually removed via the use of activated carbon or series of water changes. Almond leaves and peat are good alternatives though the peat lasts longer than the former.:)

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.
