I have some good driftwood right behind my house but it seems to all be oak.

Does anyone here have experience with Oak specifically and safety in using in your tank.

I know to scrub and boil and soak and all that stuff, but oak has some pretty serious tanins as well, so I wanted to probe the community to see if anyone had actually used it and had success.

I think its either Silver or Red Oak local to Virginia, Central East Coast.
