I've got two massive 3 foot long pieces of wood in my tank and they did explained their water for a while, but it didn't last very long which is quite surprising. I don't think it's worth putting in a small piece of wood to lower the pH, I think it would have to be fairly sizeable piece, assuming the tank is quite big.

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

i am not sure because i do not have testing kit before.
the practice here is that if you feel you have high pH,
people tends to put layers of coral cinders. after a few
months, remove them, expose to sunlight, stored, and ready
for the next use.

i haven't tried to figure this out at this point in time when
i have the testing kit. perhaps somebody could explain that.

so 6 pounds of mopani wood + 60 gallons of water = no benefical effect
