I got this piece of dift wood that a local nursery sells. They have hundred of pieces of wood, and I got his piece for 9$. I have no idea what kind of wood it is and where it came from. If there anyway of treating it or finding out? It's a nice piece, for scale the glass it's sitting on is 25" long

My morphin wood started to grow lots of white fuzz, and was too big to boil so I turned the water heater temp all the way up, picked up a small wire brush and scrubed the heck out of it, thain soaked it in hot water with some bleach all day. Thain soaked it in clean water with Prime to get the bleach out. Worked great:thumbsup:
I would consider that a good start, & if your tank is empty and your not in that big of a rush, throw it in the tank,,,, or a tank,,,, or a garbage can, or whatever with a fish or two and let it sit for a wile and see what happens.

Prime is a seachem dechlorinator/toxic metal remover product that you can get at some pet stores and at most of the major online pet retailers. It also converts ammonia/nitrite/nitrate to a different form, less toxic form, I believe. Petsmart and Petco carry it, or at least one of them does.
