In the preparations for the rescape of my tank, I'm looking to purchase a lot of wood (no idea what type). Is it ok to soak the woods in 2 3 year old garden water butts filled with rain water in my garden? If yes, how long would the wood need to be soaked for please?

I don't see a problem with it. Just give it a good scrub and wash when it comes out just in case though.

The typical wood usually takes a few weeks to fully sink, but it does vary depending on the type of wood/size etc.
