I got a marriage gift from my husband when we got married and I kinda pushed it away after he passed. So I’m finally pulling it out but it has dust sand and dead plant remains dried on it because I honestly didn’t even try and just threw it in a box (I mean i have that right. I mean he died and I had tHiNgs going through my head it’s traumatic when you lose someone that close) so I was wondering how to clean it off in his memory to try to bring my kids dad and sister back to life a little. Both my oldest and my husband died so my youngest who was born right after my husband died doesn’t remember him so here we are(this is turning into a sob story gah)

If its wood (sorry bad eyes and on my phone) then I would take a stiff wire brush to it and soak it until its waterlogged and add to the tank. If you know already where you want to add rhizome plants then I would scruff the area up extra to give the glue a better chance to hold.

What tank is it going into? Also have to say I really like its orientation in the photo with your hand propping it up, can see that being a real centrepiece to the tank. So let's get it back into a tank and looking all grown in and appreciated by you and your family (and wet pets obviously)

I don’t think it’s wood because it’s hollow although it might be. And I don’t plan on doing live plants other then floating one’s it’s going into my females tank which is a ten gallon and I am hoping mango will appreciate it :)
