I should be receiving a large Manzanita stump in a few days. Based on the layout I'm slowly comming up with for my new tank, I may have to cut the stump in half, length wise. Basicly splitting it down the middle. Will doing this adversly effect the wood in anyway? Or, by exposing the innards of the stump, will I be releasing anything into my tank? Thanks

I wouldn't imagine it would arm anything. I can't think of any reason why it would. I'm sure someone with some experience will tune in soon

depending on how weathered your wood is, you might get more tannins than usual. that's all i've experienced.

Thanks guys. I was wondering how hard it was going to be Alan. So, you're saying I should get a jack-hammer ready!? :)

+1 on the extra tannins if anything.
