Aquarium Driftwood Specimens |
*Soaking each piece in water for 1-5 days before placing in aquarium is strongly recommended.|
Brine/saltwater is best at about 1.025 specific gravity or 1/2 cup of salt per gallon. Follow this with a good rinsing with tap water. Plain rock salt or even marine salt mix is OK to use.
Boiling is another option (but our preferred method is with saltwater)
*The use of SeaChem Purigen is extremely effective for removal of "yellow" tannins (should this be desired, as these are not necessarily a problem in many specific aquarium environments).
*As a replacement for Peat, Indian Almond Leaves, etc., and/or if more pH reducing Tannins are needed/desired for specific aquarium environments;
These Driftwood Specimens can be cut into increasingly smaller pieces (even fibers) for more pH reducing surface OR simply to have more Driftwood specimens from one large driftwood specimen.
*If any fungus (white spots) develops on your Driftwood; we first recommend cutting this off, then either adding salt directly and letting it sit for a day OR BETTER adding full strength Potassium Permanganate to this area (not common with our driftwood, however this tip works for ANY driftwood bought elsewhere as well).
*Driftwood can lower your pH, so be aware of this when adding; DO NOT USE IN MARINE AQUARIUMS
