So I am new here. (Hi! *Waves like a crazy nut*) Well not new exactly. I've been stalking the site for a while. Working on getting an awesome tiled tank set up for a little Lotl (I really just wanted to say little Lotl). It's a 40 gal since I'm planning on getting one more later when I can identify sex (don't want eggs!) In the meantime I'm cutting tile for the bottom. Setting up the canester filter and chiller. And picking potential mosses (Why have a bare tank? Axes deserve a paradise!). I have a good peace of Malaysian driftwood already but would like another hide for my aqua babies! I came across this awesome peace from a reliable source and love it (see above). However, I am concerned if it is too jagged. It is mangrove and yes it has been sanitized. I know you guys will give it to me straight. Is this safe? Is grapewood safe? How about ceder? Is there any type of drift wood I should avoid?
Also while I'm here. I have a recommended filter (Hydor Professional External Canister Filter for 40-70 gal) with a spray bar. I was planning on getting some wood or something to go below it to help cut the current is this a good idea?
And one more (please bare with me): has anyone used Water Hawthorn in their tank before? How did it work out? They love shade and cool water so seems to me to be a great match!
Any help is appreciated! Thank you so much my dears!
