    So I recently bought some mopani wood from my LFS and I wanted to know the best way to remove the tannins. The boiling method wouldn’t work because I have a lot of wood and the other method of letting it sit wouldn’t work because I’m planning to fill it up in a week

    Mopani is a really heavy, dense wood. It'll probably leach for its entire lifetime. Frequent water changes will reduce the stain, and as time goes on it'll leach less, but it's likely there will always be a bit of background leaching.
