I bought some malasyian driftwood from Big Als. I'm planning on putting two small pieces in my 28 gallon bowfront and completely reduing that tank for fish like angels, barbs, kribs etc.. As i wait for my current fish to get pick/moved to other tanks i'm realising 'I have no idea what to do to this wood before putting it in my tank'.

So i was wondering what to do, i dont really want to flush a bunch of new fish down the crapper.

There is no reason it can be stored until you are ready to use it. Or you could just let it float in the tank, it'll start the sinking process and will provide some hiding space at the surface for any fish that need it.

i encourage you not to consider flushing any fish, there are always options better than flushing perfectly good fish.

with drift wood you are gonna want to saok it in a bucket or similar to make sure any tannins are out of it. tannins with tint the water a brownish color.
