Hey guys, sorry for my stupidity, but I need some help with driftwood choice.
In my twenty gallon hex i have a large and small piece of African Mopani driftwood, and I hate it. I soaked it for 3 weeks, and it has been in my tank for over 6 months and it is still leaking heavy tannins!So I know for my next tank I don't want that kind of driftwood. I'm just looking for a decent, maybe 10 inch long, piece of driftwood that isn't loaded for tannins. I just want something to tie my Anubias and Ferns onto!
So i think with any kind if driftwood I get I will boil it, but what kind of wood is decent? Is the common Malaysian Driftwood fine or should I get some small reject manzanita pieces?
I just want something decent looking that I can plant on, and I can get rid of tannins quickly. It seems like every single tank that has driftwood on this site also has crystal clear water. Please help me meet these standards. Thank you!
