Re: lil advice on setting up my tank...
From what I've been able to find, I believe Dano is correct (no surprise there
).... it seems that the procedure for boiling driftwood comes to light when harvesting 'raw' driftwood directly from the wild and placing it in a tank.
I have regular driftwood that has been used before... I was worried about passing on bacteria or parasites, but it seems that as Dano said, once it dries out and remains dried out, things die off.
This is good to know

Again: this is only my opinion and should be taken as such.
