Thread: Driftwood

    I personally refuse to buy driftwood unless it is JUST the piece I was looking for. It's far more fun to find it on your own, and it's FREE :D There's not much that goes into making it aquarium safe other than sanitizing it which can be done in boiling water, in the oven, or chemically with REALLY diluted bleach. Then all there is to do is sink it which can be done in your tank or in a water holding item of some sort. You might even be able to get lucky and find some driftwood that is already water logged if you take a rake when you go looking and rake the edges of the water ways. In my tank I only have one piece of driftwood I bought, and that was because it had some AWESOME algae growing on it that I wanted to harvest and put on my other driftwood lol.
    This is my tank with my naturally harvested driftwood:

    only the little piece with the algae was bought.

    I've noticed that people HATE it when you point out how stupid they are, so now I try to do it politely.

    Thank you :) I got all the driftwood from a freshwater reservoir near a friends house when I was visiting my family, we collected a bunch of driftwood because he has 7 tanks himself. You can find anything you need outside :) Even if you don't have anywater near you, going to the woods is a perfectly viable option as long as you make sure the driftwood is completely dried, not pine or cedar and not a softwood. If you can easily indent it with your nails, it's a softwood. Hope you find the wood you are looking for :)

    Thank you. The wood that I currently have in my tank is something that we found. I guess that would be my best option.

    Too bad you don't live closer to IN. They have tons of driftwood at the pet store I got to.
