I have used lots of driftwood (from Illinois River) In my tanks, I have never
boiled any of it in fact most of it I just spend a fair amount of time
cleaning it up and the soaking it in salt water for a while. I have never had
a problem that I know was caused for the wood, other then real brown water.
Good luck
