    Hi i know that white stuff in driftwood will disappear on it's own but i want to know is there a way to make that white stuff intentionally out of tank. It looks like my panda corys and especially otocincluses love that white stuff so i wanted to know can i make it somehow and give them here and there as food?

    Try and scrape it off then dry it and put in in a pepper grinder!

    Mmm, if you have a lfs you know well you could offer to soak their driftwood for free. So you borrow new stuff from them, let it go through the process of growing white stuff and getting water logged, and then take it back to the store and swap it out for new stuff - letting them sell pre treated wood... The only drawback I can think of is that you'll get a ton of tannins!
