I bought a piece of driftwood from the reptile section at PetSmart or Petco (I don't remember now), but worked just fine. Has been in my tank for 6 months already with no issues.
I just boiled really well, like 4 times, before I introduced into my tank. I even created a thread about it. You can check all the answers and suggestions that I got from other members.
Also be sure that has not being used with reptiles before, some stores like to put lizards out of their cages and let them sit in the driftwood to attract costumers.
