Cleaning: Remove Wood from the terrarium and spray the entire piece with disinfectant. Let it sit for 5 minutes, and then rinse completely with water. Allow to air dry for 30 minutes then return to the terrarium.
Terrariums: Zoo Med's Spider Wood has been pressure washed, heat-treated, and is ready to be added to your terrarium. Make sure the securely place each piece so that it cannot fall and hurt your pet.
Aquariums: Prepare the wood by either soaking it in a separate container until it becomes waterlogged or weighing it down in the aquarium until it no longer floats. During the first few days of having the wood immersed, beneficial bacteria in your aquarium will feed on small organics within the wood creating a thin white film on the wood's surface. This is a natural process and should go away within a week as the organics are consumed.
