Calm down people!

You can do it either way. Leave it in the tank and with carbon and water changes the tannins will diminish with time. Or you can take it out and boil the heck out of it. There will still be some tannins but it will be much less. I've had wood that's taken about 4 months to stop leeching color into the tank. And that was after I boiled it and soaked it for a couple weeks.

150 Gallon - Mostly American Cichlids
135 Gallon - Angelfish Community
75 Gallon - Odd couple (Polleni/Angelfish)
55 Gallon - African tank
20 Gallon Long - QT
10 Gallon - Empty
