    I recently found an exquisite piece of drift wood off a Texas coast and was wondering if anyone has experience with using found drift wood for a set up? I've successfully used found hardwood from a forest (after curing it) for use in a tank before, but never something found sea side. Any one...

    Hope this is right place. I've got a good deal on a 135 gallon tank that I'm thinking about picking up and I want to get big drift wood for it. I've sourced my own wood for smaller tanks and boil it to clean, but those have all been small scale. I want to pick up something gnarly, thick, and...
