We had to have our home tented for termites. We set up a tank outside and moved the fish. The other 2 tanks were emptied -- We left a piece of driftwood in an empty tank. My question: is it safe to use this driftwood, or should we replace it.TIA
I'd boil it well and throw it in a tank with some feeders just to make sure.
Welcome to the forum, JM!
Yikes, good question!
If it were it me, I'd just get rid of it. Those chemicals are strong, and wood is porous. . . I wouldn't want to risk any little lives on a maybe!
Good luck with everything - and welcome to TFK!
Just for the piece of mind I'd get rid of it
+1.i would not take the chance.
i'm just thinking here….dangerous i know
what would happen if you left it out side to the elements of nature ?
has anyone looked up the contents of the chemicals to see how
damaging they are ?
hello and welcome jm4685 :-D
I'm not advocating any way to go just asking a question from another POV.
was this other tank covered to protect it at all? if so, it adds to the better chance of cleaning it.
i would lean toward replacing it, but it is also a judgement call on where the tank was, if it was covered, and the impact of chemicals in that spot.
but, as i said. i think its safer to replace that.
i'd be a bit cheesed off if it were a very large piece,
is it rude to ask how much the wood cost you ?:oops:
