How long does it take for a driftwood to stay submerged on the water. Any tips on making it quicker. The driftwood I have is totally dried up and had soak in water last week, but still it floats.

How long is a piece of string??

I once had a log im my tank tied down with a piece of cement for a couple of months before it stopped floating, you never know.

thank you guys, it's staying on my hospital tank for now, until it sinks. did put some wedge to hold it under water. i just got a few plants attached to it so I think I'll need to wait for a few weeks for those to establish roots. my tank will be bare for a few weeks i guess.

I had a piece that I attached some string and a brick to and it finally stayed submerged after a few months....it was only 1ft long too, so not a big bit at all.

I had to take it out of the water for about an hour a month ago and now it won't sink again. It's been floating around the surface of one of my tanks for about 4 weeks now and I'm over it:)

after months of waiting, it still floats. Decided to just throw it on the tank as a floating ornament. Saves me the space below for my rays and the floating wood seems to be a perfect hiding/hunting place for my bichir and synos.

I've had a piece in a tank for at least 8 months

I've also had other bits sink after 6

It's a waiting or weighting game

I've got a couple at the moment that have sunk with rocks and cable ties

I've still got a piece that hasn't sunk for atleast six months, but i'm not complaining as my cherry shrimp love to hang out underneath it as it floats around the tank.
