You cqn buy it from Petco, you just need to cleqan it really well. Now it will leach tannin acid into th tank so just beware that the brown water is tannin acid. Doesn't harm the fish thought. If you don't want the tan water just boil and steep the drifwood till the water stays clear.

I am suprised PETCO would sell driftwood that wasn't fish safe. Try another Big Box store or use Foster's WEB site. Foster's WEB site has a lot of driftwood on it and it all sinks. You can collect it yourself but make sure to get it from a none-polluted stream or lake. Any collected from an Ocean Beach will need to have the saltautolinker.com autolinking image soaked out it first.

Re: wanted DRIFTWOOD

i thought about just buying from petco and boiling it and soaking it for a few weeks, i add the black water stuff anyway..I like the darker look plus the fish like it, the only thing i dont know is about the bamboo plants i have now if they can handle the black water, im gonna look at apetstore.com now............thanks

brown water wont hurt anythng but it's acidic so watch your PH level after putting it in.
