Driftwood - Is Oak OK for DIY
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.55 Gallon Freshwater Tank (semi-planted) 48"x21"x13"
