 Hi  Sandeep,
 
 I  have  used  Guava  tree  in  my  moss  tree  tank.  I  had  the  tree  for  almost  1  month  kept  in  terrace  of  the  house  for  drying.  Slowly  the  skin  started  peeling  off.  Once  all  the  skin  was  peeled  off,  I  boiled  the  tree  for  an  hour.  That  was  it  I  have  done  in  terms  of  curing  process.

 fresh  wood  from  mango  tree  will  be  hard  to  treat.  the  expense  would  come  same  to  buying  one  .  This  is  becoz  if  you  cut  a  mango  tree  u  see  lot  of  that  sticky  thing.but  gauva  tree  has  less  tanin  i  suppose.  I  also  had  a  doubt  if  we  can  use  coffe  tree  roots.

 You  can  use  any  wood  in  Aquarium  except  a  few(these  plants  produce  some  sap  which  is  dangerous  for  flora  and  fona)
 I  have  used  Mango  tree  in  past  however  it  requires  a  lot  of  time  to  season.
 i  have  also  used  rose  wood  root  and  guava  branches
 Process
 1.  Wood  should  be  dry(  how  to  know,  try  to  break  a  branch  and  it  should  produce  snap  sound)
 2.  Peal  off  bark  of  the  wood
 3.  if  wood  doesn't  fit  pressure  cooker  then  get  15  liters  empty  oil  tin  canister  from  any  local  grocery  store  and  cut  its  lid  and  use  it  to  Boil  Wood
 
 For  step  3  i  used  guava  branches  to  burn  fire  and  used  it  to  Boil  water.  i  kept  it  boiling  for  6-7  hrs
 
 Add  some  rock  slat  to  the  water  that  will  kill  any  fungus/  parasites  etc
 
 You  can  also  burn  wood  first  slightly  before  boiling  to  give  it  a  nice  look  and  curves
