I have always had a liking for driftwood. I'll probably be buying some today (If not, at least some time this week) for my fish tank redo.
I've heard that you have to either boil it or soak it in water for a few weeks. But, can you just rinse it off and put it in the tank?
The diftwood sold here in the fish stores weigh more then you'd expect they would, and holding one it's easy to imagine is sinking like a rock. I don't really want to wait a long time for the soaking and I can't boil it. I wouldn't mind tannins leaking into the tank, it's my goal to get tannins in that tank.
