Where did you collect the branches?
I really want to find some natural pieces around here in the creeks
and ponds, but can't seem to ever find a piece that I'm not aftraid
would go bad.

I live in Havelock so I am close to the beach. I found the piece while strolling the beach. It's very easy to cure driftwood. The hardest was finding a pot that would fit it. All you have to do is boil it evenly (if the whole thing can't fit into the pot) for 2 or more hours, with aquarium salt. Once this is complete soak the driftwood in water for a few weeks to make sure the tannins are leaked out (unless you want your tank to tun a teaish colors). Soaking is also necessary to "sink" the "drift"wood. Here are some pictures the frist piece I did for my 37 gal.



If you have any other questions please ask!
