I bought a huge piece of grapevine to be the centerpiece of my new tank. It is 2.5 ft long, 8 inches in diameter and has many caves and holes throughout. Because it is so large, I can't boil it. I have been soaking it in a scalding water, which I change at least 2 times a day. It is still releasing tannins, but at a lower level then initially. My problem is that it is starting to smell like it is fermenting and has developed a slimey, but clear coating that is easily wiped off. Is this normal when soaking grapevine? Is it because I haven't been able to boil it? What should I do to fix it?

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.
