How to prepare Drift wood

Postby Subha92 » Tue Jun 13, 2017 2:44 pm

Can some one give me the suggestion to prepare the Drift wood as early as possible. I'm soaking it in water with a heavy weight. But I want to make this process faster. Can someone enlighten me in this issue?

Thanks for the response. But the piece is so big to be fitted on a container for being boiled. In this situation what should I do??

boil with salt, brush away any loose barks and slime, wash in cold running water and put it to soak in clear cold water.. after couple of days brush again to remove any rotting parts.. wash and now you are ready to put in the aquarium!

use a bucket and immersion water heater even if some wood popping out change the direction after 1 or 2 hour. but don't keep immersion water heater on continuously.
