Maybe drilling holes in it will help it sink...
This piece of wood came from a field in Oklahoma, purchased on eBay. It's been soakin for about 6 weeks. It was very dry when I recieved it. I always soak an scrub till it sinks on it's own, an it has leached out most of the tannon that it still holds. It should be ready in a couple more weeks. I wll be drillin holes in the bottom, an filling them with lead strips next week to speed up the sinking. I'll post pixs next week... Thanks for your interest.

That is one heck of a piece of timber you have there. It seems like it shouldn't float that thing is a monster. Wow this piece of wood is going to have to make room for it to be placed in this very nicely planted tank I must say. Nice light by the way care to share the name of this fixture. It seems like it may work for my tank being we have the same footprint in aquariums. Love the layout and that Anubias you have in there boy those leaves are huge maybe you can even tie some of this plant on to the new piece of driftwood. Just imagining the shipping cost alone for such a piece never mind the cost of the piece of wood. LOL. Good thing you were home to receive this package imagine the poor delivery person when he had to make this delivery thank god they have handtrucks. No seriously I think is a great find.
