Hello. I bought this piece of driftwood that is suppose to be in he standing up position and what is interesting is that it is mounted on to the concrete slap that is about 3 by 5 and 1/2 inch thick, it is connected to concrete by a what looks like stainless bolt. Now, my question is can I put it in the tank? Or should I take it off the concrete?
I have peices of diftwood that are mounted to bases in some of my tanks. None are attached to concrete, however. All are mounted to slate. I don't know if the concrete would leech out or not, but the possibilty is there, especially if a non-hydraulic, water proof or resistant concrete is not used. I think I would remount the wood to an inert rock like slate.
It IS slate, and it IS safe for your aquarium. I know exactly what you're talking about. This piece is simply meant to anchor the wood, since standing it up in the position it is in would be next to impossible. Often, large vertical pieces of wood have these bases, simply meant to provide stability and support for their otherwise awkward position.
Tanks: 40 gal FW setup, 10 gal Reef tank.
