Ogpulchra Posted May 4, 2022 Share Posted May 4, 2022 I started soaking a bunch of spiderwood I bought from a big box store a couple of weeks ago and it smells terrible, like rot. I initially had it in still water for a week, noticed the smell and pulled it out to clean off the biofilm. I put it back in a tank with clean water, airstones and a sponge filter, but the smell is back after a day. 0 ammonia in tap and water from driftwood tank is between 0 and .25 ppm. It's barely darker than the tap water. I've never had spiderwood smell like rotten garbage before. Has anyone else experienced this? Should I give it more time or maybe soak it in a mild bleach bath?
