    Default drift wood from a creek


    0 Not allowed!
    so i want to put some wood in my 20 and possibly my 10.
    my lfs has a poor selection and also it's expensive.
    i was thinking of finding a "stick" from a near by creek.
    then boiling it, and soaking it in conditioned water.
    is that safe?

    If you get something non-resinous then yes.

    OK.

    No wood from anything that leaks resin. No pine, cedar, that kind of thing. If it's already starting to rot it's not a good idea idea.

    With rocks. Splash with vinegar first, wait an hour, look and listen for any fizzing. Leave overnight, check again. If nothing happens it's likely to be safe.
