My favourite driftwood for aquariums is JavaRoot (African). 

It always sinks (soak it for a week tho unless you LIKE the tannin in
your water <my Discus do>)...

Not a bad deal. What's the shelf-life of TMG? 

Also, here's an interesting question (or not? Lol).. 

I dose 1 week with TMG and the next week with Flourish... Is there close
to a consensus as to which is better, or what the optimimum kind of
combination of doses is? (can I pre-MIX them along with my flourish
iron, potassium for a single dosing bottle?).
