Was out in the backyard and thought this would look decent for a little while. Could this be treated to be put in my tank? I know it'd need to be boiled/soaked/etc....what else? I took a picture of both sides of it....let me know what you guys think!

It needs to be completely dried and remove ALL of the bark. The thing about using wood from nearby residents is that it may contain some harmful chemicals from fertilizers and such.

I have the bark off.....would it help if it were soaked for a week in saltwater? (Using aquarium salt)

Personally I'm too lazy and cautious about what could be on wood I just pick up! I found this and think this is the direction I'll go with my tank I'm setting up now: http://www.petsolutions.com/Default.aspx?ItemID=93612160

Nice wood, and it comes safe enough to just plunk in and decorate around. But that's just my two pennies worth.

It is a nice piece of wood you found though... Nice find...If you don't mind the labor of boiling and whatever... go for it! :thumbsup:
