Before adding the driftwood to the aquarium they should undergo the curing state and need to be cleaned. This is simply done by using a clean but soft brush and gently rubbing it over the driftwood branches under a tap. This can help dislodge dust, loose particles and will help make the wood aquarium safe. Do not use any cleaning products or soap. The wood is porous and will absorb these harmful chemicals releasing them later in the aquarium.
