that wood cannot be used in a fish aquarium. you can only use it dry for reptiles. no matter how many times you boil, bleach, sandblast, salt, you will still see that white slim after a week or two in your fish tank, and if you leave it in you tank too long that slim will ruin your water chemistry. sorry.

Manzanita is a good choice for aquariums, provided its dry. Not sure whether you have those in AL, but they're all over the wooded areas here in N CA. Sorry, I have to agree with spypet. I wouldn't put that in my tank either.
