manzanita rotting in tank?
I have some manzanita that i bought here that has been in the tank for about 5 weeks. the wood was pressured washed, boiled,scrubbed and was leech free and sunk before i put it in the tank. i noticed a few days after i put it in that there was like sawdust in the tank.
the sawdust looked like fish crap although there are no fish. after wondering and gravel cleaning the stuff out i figured out the wood is very soft and falling apart.
does everyone else have the rotten wood problem with manzanita?
i pulled the pieces out today to tie moss etc on them and noticed they are very soft. all the pieces i have are old cracked up and mostly gray in color so its old sundried wood. soft enough to get a hand full of brown color and wood chips if i rub my hand on them.
how is this wood good for the tank if its gonna rot and all apart in the tank?
