I am in the process of a complete rebuild of my 55 gallon (55x15x15) tank and due to the heavy snow breaking it, I have a beautiful piece of crepe myrtle I can use in the decor but wonder if it might be toxic to the fish or if there is some kind of preparation I need to do before using it. It has the "jigsaw puzzle" appearance like Sycamore, but is smooth and the "pieces" are tans, pinks and greens.


I have since learned that the wood is not toxic and am soaking it now. Wet it looks like brass, bronze and copper. Awesome. Hope it stays that way!

That sounds awesome. Could you possibly E-mail a picture of it to me so I can try to find some for my indoor turtle pond..? I would really appreciate it.
Thanx,
Dave.
