    I went driftwood hunting today at a local creek and I was wondering if anyone could identify the types of wood I collected and if they were aquarium safe.

    It's alder.

    #1 might be sand blasted locally and then that would clean it up nicely.

    Or soak till it sinks.

    The other pieces do not look that suitable and might take a few months to sink.
