Just courious, all my set ups are all ROCK formations and im looking do something a little different. Anyone know how to do this??? thanks again.

No, I thought you guys just went down to a lake and picked up some white driftwood, boiled it and tossed it in your tanks. I suddenly feel kinda stupid.
My lfs doesn't sell driftwood, it's just that ceramic stuff.

I didn't know that you could actually buy driftwood. Couldn't you just pick some up, boil it and put it in your tank, or is that too risky?

I am in the process of prepping a huge piece I picked up from the river I live about 3 blocks away from. It's 42" long, about 8" high (arched), and maybe 5-7" wide. I soaked it in saltwater, rinsed, soaked in a diluted bleach, rinsed, and am now saoking it in just water. All of this was/is being done in my bathtub, haha. GL finding some nice drift.
