im reading everywhere that my plecos need wood to be happy and healthy.
i keep reading they need bogwood or driftwood
my two leopard sailfins both small at the moment are in a 29 gallon tank
i tryed a big piece of mopani wood from the lfs but it looked bad in the tank and turned the water yellow even after i soaked it and boiled it for 2 weeks so its out of the tank needless to say plus neither of my plecos showed any interest in it
where can i get some get wood for my plecos to rasp??
is it safe to use wood ppl have got out of rivers and dryed out or should i only get wood from a petstore???
i have been using driftwood from the shores of lake erie for almost 40 years without a single problem...mopani is a little bit hard for plecos...a softer wood would be better...
plecos eat wood to aid in digestion...kind of like humans eating fiber....
you could also get some malaysian driftwood from he pet shop...
i found some driftwood from the pacific ocean on ebay it looks awesome and would fit in my tank good would this be ok for my pleco and how could i make sure it was safe for the tank would boiling it be good enough??
