If it did, it is very very slight, not visible to me. But when I soaked it in water yes first days it was turning water a little brown. I would recommend to soak it untill water is more clear. If it is still brown, try to change water more often when soaking it.

Anyone notice that their driftwood sheds? I see little dot-sized bits of driftwood on the gravel and leaves.

I'm not sure about real driftwood but my Mopani wood doesn't do that, unless my little BN pleco goes around picking up all the little pieces before I see them.
