Love / hate affair with mopani wood
Since I realized I needed to set up a bn pleco nursery, I started boiling a fairly small piece of mopani. It's the only piece I have small enough to fit in a spaghetti pot, and after 2 straight days of boiling, it's still making a mild "mopani" tea. (and yes, mopani is the only piece of wood I have right now that wouldn't fill the entire grow out tank)
I don't know how I'm ever going to use the larger pieces I have. I guess I'll have to buy a lobster pot or something to boil those.
