I collected the large log in this picture, it’s Manzanita wood. Is there any way to use this in the tank? If so, How would one go about preparing it? Thanks for any and all advice!

Freshly cut? Strip and clean it with pressure washer and leave it out to dry for a year.

I didn’t cut it, but it looks to be freshly fallen off the tree. A year, lol. Welp.

Strip the bark & make sure the branch isn't green. Manzanita will eventually sink, but a rock might be needed initially to weigh it down.
