Before adding driftwood to your
aquarium, it is best practice to
pre-soak the wood in a bucket
(or other container large enough
for the wood) filled with warm,
dechlorinated tap water for 24
to 48 hours.

This will help to remove the
tannins from the driftwood, as
well as make sure it is
waterlogged so that it will sink
in the aquarium. If after adding
the wood to your aquarium, you
find that it is turning the
water yellow, you can use carbon
in your filter to remove the
tannins, or repeat the
pre-soaking process to remove
more tannin before placing it
back into the aquarium.

Natural driftwood may also, on
occasion, develop a milky or
fuzzy white bacterial film after
being placed in the aquarium.
This film is harmless; however,
it is best to remove the film in
order to prevent it from
becoming unsightly. This can be
done by removing the wood,
wiping it down with an aquarium
safe sponge, soaking the wood in
untreated tap water for 24-48
hours, and then returning it to
the aquarium.
