I just found this gem in my LFS. They had many other pieces as well. Likely about 30 unique pieces!
Isn't it lovely?

Anyho, it's unofficial name is "spider wood". I am wanting to know more about this kind of wood.. For instance.. how full of tanins is it? I'm only able to fit the base in my largest boiling pot, and that bit has been boiled three times already.. How can I rid the rest of the wood of tanins? I have no spare tank, no gigantic buckets.. Will a steam cleaner do the trick? :p

10 boils in and 2 days of soaking.. Still lots of tanins! I will be putting it in my tank within another week, so I guess I'll see how it goes. If it comes down to it, I can do 3 water changes per week to maintain a more favorable water color.
