Driftwood from the ocean.
 
I found a nice piece of wood from the ocean and was wondering if after its been rinsed and soaked in freshwater, would it be ok for a freshwater aquarium?

One problem is the salt the wood has taken up. Soaking and boiling might not rid the wood of all of it, and freshwater fish can be affected. I personally would not use it.
