I have goten conflicting info on this subject. I have heard it will be fine from the LFS that sold it to me. I have also heard not to use it. I know it needs to soak for about 1 month so it will sink. but whats the scoop? Is it going to be ok in my tank? I wouldent think the LFS would sell it if it wasnt ok.

I have some in one of my tanks I weighted it down to hold it under. after a few weeks it got some strange white algae which I manually removed. It went away after a few months.
Grapewood will rot eventually though-larger pieces shouldn't be a problem for a long time.
I wouldn't purposely choose this wood though for those reasons. Some kind of rootwood is my preferred choice.

Fish Newb,
Do you have any pics of your tanks with the vine in it?
