Did you soak/boil the driftwood prior to putting it in your tank?
I boiled it for 48 hours !!!!!
but its a pretty big "thick" piece.
and despite most of the tannins having already leached....
my bristlenose constantly nips, picks and breaks the top layer of the wood.
So I have tiny wood particles floating in the tank.
