    Ok I'll go check the wood with my fingernail now, can u check wood with vinegar too? Or is it more the fingernail thing? Also how long do I need to soak it? Some people say just boil it for a few hours then soak, some say soak for 3-7days and other 2-4weeks!

    One piece is totally fine(my fav piece) the other is a bit soft so will not use that one. Don't wanna hurt the tank at all or have it rot or anything.

    So got me a new bit of wood, so now have 2 again. Both long pieces. Neither soft wood, they have been soaking for 3-4 days, finally can take off one rock on each but the other two rocks have had to stay on each piece. Just wondering if there is anyway to speed up this process? Also was wondering about a dwarf gourami(1) in my tank as my centre piece fish. Would that be ok? So I'd have my golden bristle nose pleco, dwarf and undecided on platties or neon tetras... Thinking plattys ...

    Also bf created a "walking stick" slash "hook" for cleaning the bottom and getting out decorations and tall plants for cleaning etc. Pretty creative if u ask me. Reaches all the way to the bottom :)

    I know this is totally against what you have going but this tank would make a perfect seahorse tank.. Ive thought of doing one in a hex tank but just dont have the hex. Cool looking tank. It really makes a statement in a room.
    FW: 1 45gal, 1 40gal, 3 10gal, 3 30gal all community tanks of different species
    Sw: 1 55gal, 1 30gal show, 1 29gal show, 1 20gal and 2 10's

    I love this idea!
    If it's called tourist season why can't I shoot them?
    Everything happens for a reason. Sometimes that reason is you are stupid and make bad decisions.

    I think my fish is adjusting well to the four gallon, He's laying on his side attempting to go to sleep on the bottom of the gravel.
    A moderator on a fish forum should be able to identify an oscar... Don't you think?

    The pictures showed fine. That wood will look good in your tank.

    Don't be afraid of marine tanks. I've done a bit of research into them and they are no more difficult than freshwater tanks. It is a different set of knowledge and you would have learn how to properly set up and maintain one but once that information is gathered it is no more difficult.

    If you boil wood, then let it remain in the water as the water cools, its pores will be open wide and absorb more water. Thus it gets water-logged quicker.
