Dec 2nd 2019 at 2:52 AM

Driftwood is one of the most graceful natural structures to your aquarium but it needs you some amount of preparations when it comes to adding it to the aquarium and to improve its aesthetic appeal.

Driftwood and other regular structures are key elements that if you choose them for aquarium, not only the premium look it earns with that addition but also makes a great portion of your aquarium. So, when you are doing the addition for the first time, you need be circumspect a little, for the fact that any candor could cause a great deal of stress thereby requiring taking apart the aquarium and starting the procedures all over. Here’s brief tips how to get along with adding driftwood to your aquarium.

Step # 1 – Preparation

Conjure up the space of your aquarium where driftwood would be placed and how the placement would influence the look of the aquarium if vertically positioned or kept in a horizontal position. Determine or visualize the actual aquatic landscape for driftwood placement and the possible appearance it would create for your aquarium without affecting the inhabitants (fishes) in the process.

Step # 2 – Cleansing the driftwood

You are not supposed to place dirt-ridden driftwood in the aquarium for its ostensible threat to hygienic safety of the inhabitants. Clean the driftwood using brush and scrub it thoroughly to remove all debris. Avoid soap or chemical cleansers. Make sure no residual debris is left unattended, as it would harm the aquarium’s inhabitants. Once cleaned, soak the driftwood to saturate and cure.

Step # 3 – Curing driftwood

Some driftwoods are not entirely submerged, but rather stay little buoyant until they are completely saturated and waterlogged. Starting curing the driftwood by placing it in a large bucket till it is submerged completely.

Step # 4 – Boiling driftwood
