A couple week's I should think.
Much of the wood I have in tank's was collected during fishing trips to river/creek bank's ,and so long as it's Not from trees that are sappy (pine,cedar) I would not be too worried but would still observe the lone fish for a while to see if it exhibit's any abnormal response/effect from the wood.
