So. I want to create more natural hiding spots in my tank. At the University that i go too there are hundreds of palm trees. When the leaves die and fall off the branch creates a nice big hollow. I was thinking about using a palm branch for a hiding spot. Does anybody know if they are safe in an aquarium

Not sure, dead vegetation will surely rot in a warm environment which will then create ammonia which will obviously adds to the nitrate. We normally recommend removing dead vegetation for this very reason. Normally the wood that we put in a fish tank has already been treated properly, in many cases it's actually preserved.

I think it's probably best if we let somebody who knows more about this process help you with this, but I would leave it for the moment until you get a really conclusive answer.

I may not always be right, but I am always the BOSS :-)
