I know there are a million posts on here about preparing new wood for the tank, but I can't seem to find the exact question/answer I'm looking for. I bought a couple pieces for my aquarium on Monday (one piece of spider wood and one of grapevine wood), have boiled them, and have been soaking them continuously since. Once they are sinking and I am comfortable with the amount of tannins leaching out, is there any benefit to continuing to soak and rinse them longer (say, up to the week the LFS recommended)? I'm not worried about a little bit of tannins in my tank (my pH could use it anyway), so is there really any point in waiting longer? Thanks for any input.
