That's great! I hope this thread will help you, I know it is helping me alot. I"m currently boiling the wood to get as many of the tannins out as possible. The first piece is almost good to go while all those smaller ones are still leaching like crazy.
Here's another question for anyone reading this. Is there a way to mount the Fluval fixture to this tank without making it rimless? As it is, the black plastic is too thick for the Fluval to attach. Thanks.
