Re: [APD] Driftwood wants to float

Boil it if you can. If you can't boil it due to the size I found a putting the wood in full hot bath and emptying the cold water putting hot water in for a few days helped. In my experience the tannins have not stained my bath but keep in mind yours may. I have treated quite a few self collected bits this way.
Even though the time to treate a self collected bit of wood would make purchasing one much better value it's kind of fun having your own collected wood in the tank.

Please advise me on techniques to prevent a purchased piece of driftwood
from floating. How did you get driftwood to stay submerged?
Thanks for your help.
