Hi, I brought some wood from a aquarium shop last weekend and want to get it ready for my tank. It was slightly moldy so I soked both peices in boiling water for 20mins and left them to soak in cold water over night.
Is this enough or do you think I should do something else to the wood?
So my learning curve continues a year in and i'm re-scaping my main tank. I'm starting to find out what i do and don't like and learned a lot about composition from my smaller 45P tank which i love and looking back at how this tank started out. Made a lot of mistakes along the way but it's all...
Looking for a small piece of wood to finish my tank but I'm not a fan of tannins or tinted water at all

Preferably in the look of driftwood and not roots

So today I went to my local MA to get some mini blood worms which they ran out of and instead walked away with this:What do think of that? I was amazed to get such a nice couple of pieces from MA, it cost me £17 not too bad I think.
Hello, this is my first post after lurking for a while, and i was wondering can you use London plane branches as driftwood? I am talking about the Platanus genus, i have read that they naturally grow in riparian and wetland habitats and their roots are resistant to rot... They grow all over my...
