Hi all, My tank has finally stabilized to be safe to add a fish, so I have! I updated my tank info and added a Golden nugget Pleco, very pretty fish that from reading is slow to mature/grow and max will typically reach is about 6-8 inches. Onto my dilemma, everything I've read on them states that they like real wood in the tank, I purchased a piece of Australian hardwood from my LFS. I have immersed it in my tanks water (did a 25% WC today) so my questions are: 1. How long should I keep it immersed for, 12 hours enough or wait 24? 2. How much of a ph drop should I expect from adding it to my tank, it's small-ish and from reading expecting a drop of .1-.3 from what I've read, does this sound right?
