Ok I went to the store to purchase a smaller peice of driftwood, not too big. After I got home, I decided to stick the driftwood in a 5 gallon bucket and then I boiled water and poured it over the driftwood for about 2 hours. While doing this I didnt notice any tannins. After stopping this, I boiled one last batch of water to fill the bucket. I have had the wood sitting in the bucket now for the past 28 hours. I checked the bucket over lunch, and still no tannins.
I thought the worst of tannins wear to leach out while boiling and soaking before putting it in the aquarium? I am still seeing very little if any tannins at the moment. Whats going on?
