I'm not certain if it wants to float or not. Probably does since I just got it from the pet store and it has only been submersed in my bucket for about 1 day. However my reasoning for gluing it was...

I'm coming from saltwater and it was great. 5.5G is small and I wouldn't start there especially if you want fish, however in that size purchasing saltwater and RO/DI is fine. I recommend people...

If I use slate, how large, or small of a piece should I use? Is there any issues with it being too large and causing a deadzone under the slate?

I'm not sure if the driftwood floats. It is in a bucket buried about 5" into the substrate right now. I am probably going to pull it out soon and boil it before trying to glue it with superglue...
