Hi all. I live in upstate New York, and by that I mean near the Adirondak Mts not one hour north of NYC! I was looking into putting driftwood into the aquarium I have had set up and stable for five months. I have a lot of live plants in there and also a good deal of fish. I was wondering what kind of woods I could collect from the wild woods all around me and cure to place into the tank. I know an ideal wood would be dense and not decay, but i was wondering if anyone knew (other than mopani which is only found in pet stores or online.. lol) what types of wood could I use. Also how would I go about curing a piece of drift wood, waterlogged, green, or dry?
