Does Blue-Green Algae Stain Dirftwood?

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know if Blue-Green Algae Stain driftwood? 

I got rid of most of it in my tank, but the driftwood still look like it has it.  I was able to clean it off with a toothbrush, but i just want to make sure its not still alive, and the wood is just stained.

I have never had blue-green algae stain my drift wood before. If you want to be safe, you can treat the wood in a tank with Maracyn or Erythromycin to completely eliminate any blue-green algae that may have persisted. You could soak the wood in there for a week with the meds, change out the water and soak for a week again in clean water.
