Yesterday, I went fishing and brought back beautiful pieces of drifwood that I would like to use in my new aquascape. My question is: What should I do to sterelise those drifwoods before put them in my tank? I was thinking to put them in a bucket full of boiling water for a while. It's enought or the use of peroxide will be more effective?

Definitely boil it if it fits into a big pot. You should boil it for at least 2 hours to make sure you get rid of any hitchhikers. Also I would change the water half way through and this will also get rid of any tanins that might stain your water and decrease your pH.
