I have never tried dried grapevines in a fishtank but I think it has the
potential to look pretty cool. One thought, I have heard of woodworkers
who got sick from pesticide exposure while working orchard woods (apple,
pear...) and it was determined that the source was the wood dust, which was
was heavily tainted with whatever the tree had been sprayed with over the
years. Given the ongoing contreversy over pesticide use on table grapes, I
would suggest organic grapevines or a test tank with "expendable" fish. HTH
