I just purchased a 75 gal tank and I'm wanting to get Malawi Cichlids. I have 3 other freshwater tanks but this will be my first experience with Cichlids. When I bought the tank the store gave me a bunch of raffle tickets for an event they were doing. I ended up winning a light for the tank and a Bonsai Driftwood tree. The bonsai is fairly large and had a price tag of $90 on it. But I'm a little concerned about it going into a cichlid tank. I've done some research and I know driftwood can raise the ph and release tannis. I plan on boiling the tree and soaking it for a couple of weeks before I put it in the tank. Another concern is that the tops of the branches or little fake canopies are pretty sharp. Will tying moss down to them be a good idea? Will the cichlids eat the moss? The tree is too big for my other tanks so I'd hate to not use it. It's pretty cool looking, but I don't want to put any fish in danger. Any help or suggestions would be appreciated.
