re:Paludarium start

Olga in Vancouver is looking for wood for her new Paludarium.

I have read somewhere that beech wood is ok in an aquarium. It's non-toxic 
(composted beech leaves are said to make a good substrate for crypts) and 
does not leach to any great extent. And you should be able to find it in BC.
Use the usual precautions w/respect to environmental contaminants before using
