I know that driftwood labeled for reptiles isn't necessarily ok to use in an aquarium.
Went to PetSmart today to get some melafix, and since the schools were closed (bad snowstorm here in NJ) my son was with me. I've been promising him an African Dwarf Frog for his tank and since his birthday is next week...
SO- I bought him the frog at PetSmart because our LFS doesn't have the dwarf variety. I wanted to get some driftwood for my pleco and though it would be a nice addition for his tank for the frog to hide under. I should've known better than to listen to the PetSmart salesperson!!! I had both kids with me and I just wanted to get home, so when he said this driftwood was ok for an aquarium, I just took it.
Now that I am home, I am doubting everything about this driftwood since it does NOT say aquarium on the package (but it doesn't say NOT for use in an aquarium either). It is Mac's Grape Driftwood, product of the US and heat treated. I could not find a website nor a phone number for this company is Oregon.
Does anyone know if I boil and scrub it it will be ok to use?
