    Mangrove wood is perfectly safe to use in aquariums....very popular here. Expensive as and illegal to collect your own, must come from a licensed collector and is supposed to have a tag number on it so Authorities can check where it was sourced. It is a hardwood also just to clear that up.

    The wood will stop leaching tannins when its ready....could be anywhere from weeks to years, depending on the wood itself. If you dont want it happening in the tank, put the wood in a large bucket/container and soak it there

    so this is the color of the water, the piece of mopani that is in there nowwas in there before and has leached out, got it from another tank, today is 4 days i believe since i took the other out with 20% water changes daily, though i do have a AC110 running with the emp 400 now, also excuse the stains, the are like calcium deposits or somthing, i cant get them off and wont dare windex till i get the lids I ordered in

    Spray the paper towel with windex and then wipe the glass. I've always cleaned my glass like that. Don't spray the tank even with lids on it.
    Don't even worry about the tea color. It will clear up in due time.

    Thanks Alasse on clarifying the Mangrove. I wasn't certain and like I said, tried to nail some myself. I was afraid the FBI would haul me off the airplane! LOL Grapewood, I hear, is poisonious to fish. At least that's what I've been reading.

    wow, didnt know that, jeez i think i posted somehere on here I used to own RBP's ouch... anyway so i am really starting to think that the color is from my paint, i scooped some water out and it is clear as glass. also the windex did not work on those stains, after i try vinagur I am out of options, oh i hate the small of it though.

    UPDATE:

    so in Emperor 400 have no blue pads, just black retangler sponges a few bio rings and in baskets, carbon. the tea is pretty much gone, i will swear that the green coloring that is my wall still ruins pictures. in AC110 no carbon just bag of whatever, and sponge. Then old faithful sponge filter. not usally a big fan of carbon but its doing what its doing for the best, also may add a small bag of Purgin(sp) in one side of Emp.
