If I was going to use it I'd put it into something that you can pour boiling water over it before you put it in your tank

I would give it a dam good soaking first if possible for at least 2-3 days Idea
It could have all kinds of treatment on it, or even diseased Shocked

Just be very cautious cos you may kill all your fish affraid

The wood will be safe its oak so wont carry any fish diseases, we give it a good rinse with hot water to kill any bacteria or bugs its now soaking, probly give it another rinse with hot water and chop it up because its too big for our tank. or might just keep it for when we gett a bigger one, our new tank dont really need it.
