With all the discussion about cedar, I thought I would share my
"Mountain cedar", aka "post cedar" or "Mexican cedar" is a common
evergreen here in central Texas, where it is typically used as fence
posts. I have had two different stumps in my aquarium for the past 6
years, with absolutely no problem. However, that species is formally
known as ashe juniper, Juniperus ashei. Thus, it is actually a
juniper, not a cedar, despite it's common name. I believe aquarium
suitability is dependent upon what species you have.
I can vouch for the suitability of ashe juniper in aquaria. My black
skirt tetras have lived with it for six years, and my SAE's graze the
stump constantly. Handsome, too.
