would have to say if you dig down deeper you could probably stirr up any oxygen bubbles down there but thats my guess. So I dont see anything wrong with digging down deep. With my first tank dug down pretty deep and it did nothing but kick up some oxygen bubbles. I also had no tests so I had no idea if it did anything wrong.

With vengence you can have the choice to go out and take vengence or you dont and live your life so you choose but the most important part is to let your heart have a say in what you choose to do.

Driftwoods leach tannins. Boiling won't remove the tannins completely and will continue to leach tannins over time. I doubt driftwoods ever would be the culprit for bacterial blooms.

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.
