[APD] RE: rocks'n'wood

////I think Richard most likely collected Eastern (or Northern)White Cedar or ///Thuja occidentalis (aka Arborvitae) in his neck of the woods (Southern Ontario).
It's harmless in a fish tank, and ancistrus love to chew it.

i dont think cedar is good for your tank, lakes around here that have
lots of cedar rotting in them tend to be dead and support no life
except for bugs and salamanders, i have never seen fish or plants
growing in these lakes.  i dont know if you have the same cedar as we
do as there are about 15 trees around the world called cedar and most
of them arnt even from the same tribe let alone genus.
i would be carefull with it tho, at least research the possible toxins
or preservitives in the wood (our cedar has natural preservitives in
