I just picked up a large piece of driftwood off of Craigslist that was formerly used in an aquarium. I cleaned the piece off and am trying to get in in my tank somehow (29 gallon). My tank has been running for about a year and a half. But my question is, will the driftwood eventually sink on its own? Maybe after it gets waterlogged? Right now I have a few rocks weighing it down, but eventually i would like to get those rocks back down on the surface of my tank. Thank you for your help!

im not positive how long it will take but eventually it will stay down on its own. :wink:

does anyone know how long? Even a ballpark would help... hours? days? months? haha sorry, this is my first experience with driftwood so I am really clueless.

If it was completely dry before it will probably take a few weeks to become properly waterlogged.

how big is the piece of wood?
|giarc721 ||02-11-2008 06:56 PM |
the wood is probably a foot or so long and about 4 inches in diameter at the thickest point. Every day or so i kinda of lift the rock slightly seeing if it will stay down. As of now it still wants to float
It also depends on the type of wood. I have had pieces take 2 weeks to 6 months.

6 months?!?!?! i had no clue it could take THAT long.

I had a piece about that size and it took a few weeks to stay down on it's own. How much did you get it for on Craigs List? I was going to put mine on there since it doesn't fit my tank anymore.

i actually got it for free. a person gave away a 5, 10, and 30 gallon tank, heater, filter, driftwood, fake plants, substrate, and hood for the 10 gallon. Sadly, I did not get there soon enough for the 5 and 10 gallon tanks since that is the only reason i went there, but at lelast i got an extra heater and driftwood for my 29g tank.
