Driftwood, real or fake?
I have a piece of driftwood in my aquarium, but i don't know whether or not it is real. Can someone tell me a good way in that I can find this out.

Just scratch it with your fingernail. If it is real wood you will scratch some off, no matter what type or age; if it is ceramic it will not (hopefully) come apart. Also, real wood has a somewhat soft feel when you press it.

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
