So my Malaysian Driftwood has been soaking for two days.
I got two XLs and one Medium-Large piece of driftwood for my 55gal tank. They are all Malaysian and from Dr. Foster and Smith. They've been soaking for two days, and the fish I currently have in my tank is a crowntail betta, cherry barbs, and neon tetras. And some cherry shrimp. Anyways, if I continue soaking and changing the water until Friday, and then make sure I scrub them really good, can I add them to my tank with my weekly water change? I believe it would be ok since my fish like softer/acidic water anyway and I don't think it will make a huge difference. Also if some tannins leech out it won't bother me, I'm pretty sure the fish will like it so I'm game.
pH is already 7-7.2
I'm pretty sure this would be ok, just making sure though xD
SOOO excited to have my driftwood and seachem flourish comprehensive! Finally!
If you dont mind the tannins leech then yes you should be fine.
I always boil my my drift wood on the stove before i put it in my tank becuase i hate the tannins leech.
I ordered malaysian driftwood from dr foster and smith and I put it in my tank right away. Well after a quick rinse in some old tank water. It sunk right away and hasn't leeched any noticable tannins.
