malaysian wood

i got a piece of malaysian wood from petsmart the brand is hagen. it says you can just put it in that it has already been cleaned. i did soak it in water for 24hrs i put it in the tank already but now i'm wondering if i should have soaked it some more or did something else to it. the water that i soaked it in was clear when i soaked it if that has any meaning

hi
you could always remove it if you wanted to,do you not like tannis ?

when you set up a new tank,hide an extra
sponge or two behind some decor,that way you have
something seeded for you next filter.

it isn't changing the color of the water, i wanted to know if there was something else i should have done with it. because it isn't leaking tannis into my tank.
