Sometimes it takes quite awhile for it to get waterlogged. Tying it to slate keeps it at the bottom where you want it and when it does get waterlogged you can remove the slate if you want.


I plan on doing this in one tank with smaller driftwood since I don't want to weight it down with rock sitting on top of it.

the driftwood is already waterlogged, my probelm was every time i clean the tank, if i barely tap the driftwood, the wood "uproots " from the gravel and uproots surrounding plants and its very irritating.

anyway, i finished the aquascape...for now. i glued pieces of marimo ball to driftwood :D looks really good! but alot of dirt and debris in the water landed on the algae making it look ugly. i just want some small crypt plants and maybe some anubias plants for the middle and the dward hair grass to grow out more and it will be finished :D im also thinking of putting tall hair grass in the back. what do you think?

Hit me up Baby

when wood is waterlogged, it's heavier than water and won't float..
