So I have had bearded dragons and have kept drift wood in there tank. Now I was wondering can I clean the drift wood that was in the tank with my dragons and put it into my African cichlids tank?

Depends on the kind of driftwood. Driftwood sold for reptiles usually will not be good for an aquarium.


Of you can use it I'd boil it good to make sure it doesn't carry over anything.

I'd soak it or boil it.

you will want to soak it in really hot water or boil like suggested. not only to kill anything on it but also it can make your water brown.
