You could soak the wood for a few weeks. I did that and then rinsed it and it was fine. What kind of wood are you using?Nefersmum said:I've never had drift wood in my tank before and having decided to add some I did a bit of research. I don't have the facility to do a 2hr 'boil wash'. Is there another way to prepare it for my aquarium?
If you can boil the wood for half an hour than it would be cleaner and a little bit safer but it’s probably fine without it.Nefersmum said:I haven't bought any as yet. I started reading about it and thought it best to check this out before I went any further. That thread has a lot of useful info. Many thanks
