    Good deal...yeah, after doing a couple of soakings in a weak bleach solution, do several more soakings in fresh water that has been dechlored with Prime...that'll take care of any leftover bleach residue

    Use plain old bleach, not any perfumed crap

    You mentioned a "freshly cut" part.

    Above all else, wood that goes into the aquarium needs to be dead and dry with no bark. Any sap in the wood can leech into your aquarium and cause you some serious issues.

    I cut a branch off a big snag that was embedded in the bank of the creek. It is quite dead and gone, I can assure you. I think rotten bits are going to be a bigger issue, but there seems to be plenty of sound wood to work with.

    Skip the silicone, and drill hole, using fishing line to tie it to the rock or flat piece of slate or light diffuser egg crate (weighed down with rock). Using silicone to glue wood is more trouble than it is worth.

    I agree - the rotting stuff will come off with the wire brush down. I use an old kitchen garbage bin for my driftwood. A lot of my club members keep drift wood finds in bins in their back yard soaking for months and just pull them when ready.
