Turning terrarium driftwood into aquarium driftwood
Some time ago I’ve got a perfect piece of branchy driftwood from aquarium store.
It was terrarium driftwood and I omitted paying a fortune for it.
The first thing I did before putting it in a tank was boiling the driftwood. It’s a good preparation for any thing you buy and like to use in a tank.
The next challenge I faced was floating wood. Of course, this new wood was not going to sink easily, but I needed it in a tank fast.
So, I select some of small rocks I had and inserted several on them between small bottom root. Look at the pictures.
As a result driftwood became part of underwater aquarium landscape. With time, the wood soaked enough water and can hold itself underwater without help of rocks.
Look at the aquarium I had with this nice piece of wood.
It become even better after I’ve added some anubias nana plants on the driftwood.
