  1. fish mysteriously dying?

    Advanced Freshwater Discussion
    I've had about 4 fish die within the last month or so and I dont have any affordable fish stores in my area to buy testing strips or anything. It all seemed to start when I added a new plant in the water. Water sprite i believe it was. It ended up dying. I have 2 pieces of medium/large driftwood...
  2. Wood as a decoration (from a tree)

    Beginner Planted Aquarium
    (wasn't sure where to post this) If I were to go out and take a piece of fallen branch, remove the bark, and sterilize the wood, would it be aquarium safe? Does leeching occur only in driftwood or all woods? What would you say is the amount of days the wood should spend soaking if tannins can...
  3. Getting wood for Albino Bristlenose

    Freshwater and Tropical Fish
    I'm new to keeping an Albino Bristle Nose. He's housed in a heated ten gallon tank with a snail and a beta. My question was on driftwood: I'm going to get him some, but I was wondering if it has to be specifically driftwood, or could it be another wood so long as it's not been treated or...

  5. Silly question about wood

    Beginner Freshwater Aquarium
    I've seen a lot of pics on here that have pieces of what looks like wood in the tank. It looks pretty cool. So do you buy it or find it? (I'm just gonna assume buying but you never know) What's its called? Driftwood? I obviously have no clue about wood. lol
  6. Petrified wood and Jasper (tank decor) for sale

    TFK Other Countries Classifieds
    I have a lot of petrified wood and Jasper from Texas that I've personally collected. I've sold a good amount to friends near me to put in their aquariums, but I thought I'd open this up to everyone because it seems that aquarium specified petrified wood isn't easy to get ahold of--at least at a...
