I am almost done building brutus's new place, and instead of buying all kinds of stuff for the inside i was wondering if i could use a tree branch that i found in the yard, it would fit perfectly and would be perfect for inside, i know that people say that if you put things in you should use 1 parts bleach to 10 parts water, but do you do that on wood as well? and if so is there a difference in the type of wood? (Maple, Pine, etc.)

I was also told that if it's something that won't fit in the stove, you can put it in the freezer for a couple days.

I just set Swordtail's timer for his bath and paused it so I could actually fill his soaking bowl up and he crawled over my phone and canceled the timer 🤣
Mirage came out of brumation on April 26. He was doing great. On May 2 he started acting funny. We just redid his tank, and he keeps going into one of his hides. He just lays there. He shows no intrest in food. HELP!
