Bogwood

Post by PaulVerrall »

Can I recondition myi bogwood? I super glued loads of moss over some large nice pieces and the fish have stripped it so now doesn't look nice as you can just see where the glue is. (Yes I know @plankton @fr499y @Martinspuddle I KNOW!!! Lol)

Can I sand it? Strip the wood back or will that release toxins if any kind?

You could try sticking little gems where the moss was, a Disney princess / pirate scape.

Have always glued my plants, sand and re-soak and the wood will be fine.

Use sandpaper to remove the glue, that's what I did.
