i got a small piece of wood out of a creek once and didnt have any problems with it. just make sure its hardwood and not soft wood like pine. i would also boil it to kill any bacteria or organisms. i think tree bark would just float...why would you want it in your tank anyway?

no, all wood is not the same. there are hardwoods like oak, and soft woods like pine. the soft woods will rot a lot faster than hardwoods. i know you want the WOOD as a decoration, i was wondering why you would want tree bark in your tank?
