I was just wondering about using driftwood in tanks. doesn't the wood break down in the water? couldn't that cause problems down the road? I like the looks but have been hesitant to use it.

If it is properly prepared it should be fine for quite some time.

Tiny pieces break off like its slowly disintegrating but I've never had a problem in the eight years I've been using it. Most of the time they're so small they vacuum right out. I even have pieces of wood originally used in very acidic discus tanks that are now in my CA tank. No problemo.
