I really like your set up, pretty jealous myself. I have Malaysian driftwood in mine. I had boiled it for about 3 hours and soaked it for a month. I put it in my aquarium and it leached a mild amount of tannins. I read that using SeaChem Purigen it would remove the tannins. So i gave it a shot and it removed the light tea color and the water is crystal clear. Some actually enjoy the look, i didn't mind it but i still wanted to try it.

But again, tank looks great. Can't wait to see it full of life.
