Well not all wood can and should work for aquariums, boiling wood that has been in another tank is by far the safest and fastest way to clean it. If it's already got plants on it, quarantine the wood for about 2 weeks in a clean water holder with a light. Normally by 2 weeks everything that you don't want in your tank has already either appear or has died off,
There is no such thing as ‘Rescuing’ a betta or any fish for that matter from any LFS. Be it petsmart, Petco, or exotic and aquatic’s down the street. You are not ‘rescuing’ anything, you are buying a fish. It doesn’t matter if that fish has fin rot and you are saving it from dying a slow death, you are still supporting an industry that thinks it’s okay for these fish to live in small pint size bowls.
