A beautiful two color African hardwood for aquariums or terrariums. Smooth surface, textured detail, and unique mottled color adds interest and enrichment to habitats. Use with plants to create the "naturalistic" look. One of the hardest and densest woods available; sinks immediately in aquariums and unlike driftwood, will not rot!
All natural wood products leach tannins, which discolor water and reduce pH levels. To minimize this effect, soak wood in a separate container, and change water daily to remove excess tannins.
When the water color goes from dark brown to a very light.
Adding extra carbon to your aquarium filter can help remove any remaining discoloration.
Great looking driftwood. It come a lot bigger then I expected which was great. You do have to soak it to release the tannins but it sinks right away. No need to weigh it down and it looks great in the aquarium.

The wood came and the colors are gorgeous! I woud recommend this product to anyone. You won't find these natural colors in an ordinary piece of wood!

The price alone is the best deal. When I received the product, it was actually in perfect quality. I ve been searching for some natural wood to put into my tank that Im setting up for plants, and everywhere I looked for this wood, I couldnt find anything less than 30-40 bucks a piece. I work at a pet store and even with my discount, I couldn't get this good of a deal. Im buying another piece as Im writing this.
