Re: [APD] driftwood
Intuition tells me that a wood that kills moths and fungus just might
also kill fish. Cedar, Juniper, Redwood, come to mind. But, I also
know that some tropical hardwoods are poisonous even to humans. I
resisted adding any wood to my tank for that reason, but what I finally
did add, from the LFS, hasn't caused any problems.
