the mopani wood in my 90 leached tannins for about 3-4 months. i had soaked it for a month while changing the water every other day before it went in the tank. hang in there
oh yeah that was with EI dosing so there was a 50% water change every week. activated carbon worked well to clear the tannins when it got too bad
