Wood from a fish store is safer than collecting. I use Malaysian Driftwood exclusively, it is dark brown to black, heavy so it sinks immediately, not bad for initial tannins, and comes in so many different shapes you can usually find exactly what you're looking for. And some pieces are full of tunnels which is ideal for loaches and catfish. Many fish stores carry this now, depending where you are. You can also buy it online, but then of course you don't know exactly what you are getting until it arrives--each piece is different.
