NFC: tree bleed

tannic acid... yes, they can   
curing prior to putting it in your tank will do... you can soak it, bleach it, let it sit out in the sun.. and several others.. I don't know which is best.

Back on another...off topic subject.  Does anyone know if trees can 'bleed' their color?  I put a pretty huge piece of cedar in my aquarium (ants carved a cool network of tunnels in it), and my water has had a brown tint to it.  I put the cedar in when I put water in the tank the first time so I never tried it without it.  It's in a 170 gallon plexi tank I built, it can't be some odd combination of my lighting and the plexi properties can it?  I'm running a 300 - 400 gph pump with a water purifier to cycle my wet/dry filter water and that seems to clean it up. 
If it's the wood, anyone know a way of stopping it from 'bleeding'?

Redford's message is so loaded with misinformation and emotional propaganda
that it makes me almost ashamed to think of myself as a conservationist. I
trust no one on this list will act on his emotional appeal without first
checking some facts.
