I have a feeling the label saying it for Cichlids just means that the wood won't lower the pH of the tank like some do. Can you attach a photo of the screw? It might be to attach it to a slate base to help it sink.

If it doesn't lower the ph that's good, spoken to the seller he said the screw is stainless steel and it's a 316 marine whatever that means lol i would post pic but I put it in to my tank 10 minutes ago and my light is off sorry! The screw was on the wooden base to hold the top part so it stands up. Thank you for your help

If it's stainless, then I wouldn't worry too much. Just keep an eye on it.

80% PWC; I will be doing 2 PWC every week. Tues will be the gravel/glass/filter etc work & Sat will be just a water change. I added what will be the last of holey rocks in the aquarium & another piece of drift wood. Moved the spray bar dirction more above and cichlids are now swimming more above than before.

50% pwc on the 35 hex, pruned damaged leaves from plants. It looks really nice! Also wiped the inside glass on my 10 gal nano reef. All 3 tanks look marvelous.
