- - driftwood floating
|letmec17 ||02-11-2009 08:30 AM |
about 2 weeks ago i bought some driftwood ( medium size), from petco, the sales person told me that it needed to soak for 2 weeks in a bucket and it should get water logged, here it is going on 3 weeks now and the wood is still floating any advice on what i can do, or should i keep letting it soak ?

just let it soak. some will take longer then others. months even.
the other option is to attach it to a piece of slate and sink it that way.

If you want it in your tank new you can attach the wood to a rock and force it down. It'll soak in your main tank and eventually sink on its own.

I'd attach it to some slate as mentioned earlier. I had a piece of driftwood from Canada that never stayed down even after 10 years of soaking. It really depends on the type of wood. I see one of my LFSs sell the driftwood already attached to a piece of slate using a stainless steal screw.

i would suggest attaching it with aquarium safe silicone.
generally the ones you see already attached to slate ar to get the piece to stand upright for planted tank setups.

I'd be curious to see what kind of wood it was that soaked for a decade and didn't waterlog.
