when I get new driftwood, I soak mine in a bucket of freshwater for about a week, lying a brick or something heavy on it... this way the tannins can leach out of the driftwood some, and the wood becomes waterlogged and will settle better in my tank.. sometimes I have to weigh the wood down under a rock in my tank for awhile before ti will stay down...

Some people say boiling it, which forces the air out of the wood, is a possibility. I have never tried it, as I believe it is generally unnecessary.

Whenever a piece of driftwood comes with a ba
attached, you should always bury it under a la
gravel or some rocks to hold it down.
