    Hello! I bought a piece of Mopani driftwood from Petsmart (Zoomed). I boiled it for a couple of days and it's not leaching any tannins in my tank, but it is red in color~as red as my male cherry barbs. Is this normal?

    Like, pinkish read? I got a piece that's a dark orang-ish red, I think it's pretty.

    It's orange-ish red, it really is pretty. I will let it be~it's not causing any problems in my tank, after watching it for a few days. Thanks, everyone :)
