Very nice! I really like the shape of the large one with the arch and the hole in it that's gonna be a great looking piece in a tank :thumb:

Looking at the color of the very dark piece. I would recommend boiling that one, several times.

I think that if any will leech the most tannins out.

There was a product which somebody posted in the forums sometime ago that is supposed to help with tannins but I cannot immediately find it.

If I do I will PM you the link to it.

There was a lot of dirt on them, there not as dark now that i scrubbed them. Cant really boil them sence there outside and cant bleach them because there in the tank there going into. so im going to soak them for a week or 2 till they stop floating and have clean water.
