I soaked the driftwood in my tub for several days in scalding hot water, then I soaked it in a kiddie pool for over a month. Finally, I aged my driftwood in the sun/weather for six+ months.
The driftwood is too large to boil with any container I have. Bottom line, I dont think the driftwood is the source of the cloudiness, only the tea-colored tannins. I forgot to mention we added Purigen to the filter media in my HOB
filter (also has carbon).
Your statement about doing PWC
too frequently puzzles me b/c I was under the impression that it was impossible to do too many PWCs. I'm not rinsing my filter media, I'm just syphoning out dirty/cloudy water.
Anyone else got input on this?
