Can I put any wood from a lake or river n my tank? If so is there anything I need to do to it before I put in the tank cause some pieces I have collected is to big to boil. Thanks guys

Staszek Ziom says:

Copper is a NO NO (highly toxic) if you have shrimp, lobster, or snails in your aquarium!

chris jones says:

*_The step by step directions laid out in this woodwork plan is thrilling [Check Details Here⇒>☞★☞_**_**_ ]. It eliminates any guess work and makes your work easier and faster. I simply love the plans, they are quite good. I highly recommend it to everyone._*

Brandon C. says:

NO COPPER! It slowly breaks down and leeches into your tank.  Could be bad for shrimps, but it would definitely kill a reef.

jeff mosier says:

Do you collect that driftwood on the Ohio River?

Charles Maunder says:

Is there any danger of toxicity using copper wire?

ArowanaMan85 A says:

MNaquatics says:

You always have bomb wood, just curious as to where you get your driftwood from?

Arnaud cordier says:

3:40 what’s the video ?

Rico Suave says:

If your trying to do a aquascape with wood and you don’t have any thing to break in the tank just throw them around and see what you get haha that’s what I do every week after a water change in a 55 gallon tank with a pair of angels and group of tetras….I would be careful doing it with a full on planted tank tho

Sotdot says:

Thanks for sharing the tips Dustin. Have you ever used zap straps to hold the wood in place?
