Interesting. My Mopani piece had no problem sinking and staying down. I soaked it for about 2 weeks in treated water with daily water changes though. And to qualify, it is one big giant piece and is likely the reason.

Yes, he is. I bought myself a HUGE lobster pot for this very same reason! You can kept that wood boiling with pots like ours. :)

The darker woods usually sink easily.

well I'd take the giant rock out while you boil the water...
If anything boils out of the rock, it will get absorbed into the wood, possibly leaching out into your tank.

I always left my wood on the back porch in a bucket of water...

Whenever I remembered about it, it was usually waterlogged.


Oh, and dont eat crabs in front of your invert tank- might be traumatic.

I ate fish the other day and I swear my guppies were watching me and looking at me funny. I don't think they trust me anymore...
