Hey I cut down my tree and I want to use one of the logs as driftwood. The log is 2.5 feet long and 1 foot wide. I cut the bottom of it on a slant so it would be slanted in the tank. But I was wondering is it okay to leave the log solid or should I hollow out the log? The tree was oak. So its some good wood. I am going to boil it. Then freeze for a couple of days and then boil it again. Then im going to put it in a tub of water after about a hour im going to put it in another tub filled with my fish tank water. After about another two hours im going to let it dry. Then im going to get some water safe silicone and glue the slanted part to some slate tile. Do you think this is okay to do? I dont want to hollow it out but if I have to that is fine. Also how do I get moss to attach to the driftwood. Im going to try with some store bought driftwood and if its good im going to out it on the log to. If there is a crack in the log do you think it is possible to get a plant to shoot its roots in there and start growing from the driftwood?
