I could not get the rock to stay, the line just let loose and the rock fell.
I liked Erik's trick so much, I decided to weight the piece in my little 7 gallon tank with some squarish rocks I found. My wood shredded a bit, and the rocks kept falling through but eventually I got a figure eight type wrap that was tight enough that I could get into the tank without the rock falling out. It's still loose but it got the job done. Be patient, tie a lot of wraps, and tie tighttttt.
If your wood is falling apart that badly then, yeah, it it is too rotten to use.
