mopani wood leaking sap
A few days after i added my soaked wood i noticed that it was leaking sap. When it was soaking I never saw it leak any sap until after I placed it in my tank. So my question is how can I stop it.
Here's a link to another conversation with the same question. I think the bottom line of the thread was that it needed to boiled and baked a lot. Barring that, just get a different piece. I've never had trouble with my mopani leaking anything or giving off fungus. I boiled it for several hours each piece.
So... are you saying try boiling first and if that doesn't work buy another piece?
Sorry, it's late. I'm saying try boiling or baking before you replace it.
Jayy, if you read the thread that TexasTanker linked, you will have spotted the caution about toxic fungus. Fungus and sap are different obviously, but if you see white fungus I would not use the wood. I need not elaborate, it is covered in that earlier thread.
Ok thanks ill look in to that
