"Worth every penny."

If I had gotten small pieces I would have boiled them. Surprisingly, tarter I put it into the tank, I see no tanin at all. This is acceptable to me, because my water stays clean and clear, despite the tint. I was unsure when I ordered what type of wood they would be. Make sure you boil the item before adding to your set up. This alone will not drop it to the low numbers some fish need. I have another 5 Gallon Marine and Portrait to setup.

"Great purchase."

It blends wonderfully with my other natural decor. It's a lottery when buying driftwood online. My filter should take care of any water discoloration from this driftwood. I bought three of these and all three are only 11 inches long at their longest edge. I changed the soaking water 3 times. I'm not sure what people are expecting for this price. Mostly straighter bits of wood in the lake bottom, etc.

"One looks a little blah."

Very happy with product and fast shipping and receiving. I am impatient and don't want to wait to soak. It's totally normal for natural wood to grow a white biofilm. Overall, the purchase is definitely worth it. I am very big on using natural materials when I aquascape. I recieved a Fluval Mopani Driftwood. Great customer service as I had a few branches missing.

Would buy again if I ever get a larger tank. Arrived today and I'm very pleased with quality for the price. The molding, texture, and general look is really good with this particular product.

"Don't hesitate buy some!"

I received some nice pieces for sure. I am going to boil it tomorrow and then let it sit in water until the tank comes. The water was clear enough for me to use. Overall, if you need a few smaller pieces of wood, this should work for you. You could also leave off a section branch and use it separately in your design. I like to aquascape with realism to imitate an aquatic habitat. However, this particular product is exceptional.

"It's very nice."

I was unsure when I ordered what type of wood they would be. I am glad it is in my tank and adds something natural that the fish should enjoy. I really love the piece and it was well worth what I paid for it. Also, I woke up this morning to the biggest bubble nest! Not as big as I thought, but still two nice pieces! The mopane wood is two-toned, with a very light tone and a black tone. My aquarium has been up and running for a few weeks now.

"Really love the mopani."

The branches need to be securely assembled to avoid them coming loose and floating. Boiled them for several hours then let dry in the full sun. You roll the dice and don't know what you're going to get. I've now ordered 2 large and 2 medium. It even had small branches correctly located to do my mount! After a little online research, I decided to buy mopane driftwood for my Fluval 2. The molding, texture, and general look is really good with this particular product.

"No floaters."

Based on other reviews some things are certain. You can bend and trim to some extent to help conform it to your particular space. But up close it is obvious where the branches connect and makes it look fake. I got a small piece and it is fairly large. I highly recommend this driftwood and I would buy it again. I am rarely a fan of artificial aquarium decor. If you have a small tank this is a problem.

"RIP Spoon, RIP!"

EDIT, boiled the wood for 2 hours and they sank. It provides a decent, natural-looking refuge for smaller fish and other creatures. I recieved a Fluval Mopani Driftwood. However, this particular product is exceptional. I couldn't be happier with my purchase. All natural product what looks great. Don't scrub too hard or you'll take off the color on the piece.

  • Zoo Med Tag Mopani Wood
  • 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 leaches 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. The wood will be ready 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

"The betta loves that."

I boiled mine for two hours and the water was almost black. People have also complained about the coloring of water. Each peice is unique, which makes it fun in my eyes. Be sure to follow the directions for de-tanning the wood. Don't scrub too hard or you'll take off the color on the piece. Don't scrub too hard or you'll take off the color on the piece.

This is acceptable to me, because my water stays clean and clear, despite the tint. Just what I wanted, couldn't be happier! The water makes the wood a beautiful brown color.

SunGrow Final Thoughts

"They did not float."

I bought three of these and all three are only 11 inches long at their longest edge. I ordered the Large Piece and it's about 17 inches Long. A little apprehensive after reading some reviews. My shrimp liked to crawl around and eat off this. I was unsure when I ordered what type of wood they would be. But up close it is obvious where the branches connect and makes it look fake. Two pieces each individually taped up and no breakage.

"The turtles love it."

Very similar to photo and it was large. The branches need to be securely assembled to avoid them coming loose and floating. Item was replaced in a very timely manner. Decent size around 4-6 inches each. For the price, I received 5 useful and interesting pieces. People have also complained about the coloring of water. It even had small branches correctly located to do my mount!

  • SunGrow Hermit Crab Woods, 6” Climbing Logs, Chew Toy, Stimulating Activity for Little Climbers, Keep Hermies Busy and Active, Long Dried Aquarium Décor Adds Raw Beauty, 3 Pcs
  • ✔ CREATE PICTURESQUE, REALISTIC HABITAT FOR CRABS --- Hermit Crabs are uncomplicated pets to take care of. However, their health should not be taken for granted. The 3-piece Cholla Woods by SunGrow is the raw dried husk of the Cholla cactus. It has a soft texture and porous structure that allows you to create a native crabitat environment needed by your pets for their overall health.
  • ✔EXCELLENT ADDITIONAL FOOD SOURCE --- Hermit crab is an omnivore and scavenging is a typical way to look for food. They have plenty of options available in the wild to pursue this activity which accelerates their growth. Thus to have this wood in their habitat is important. They love to chew on this wood. We bet, your hermies would love this addition.
  • ✔PERFECT CLIMBING TOYS --- Hermit crabs don’t go around, they simply climb over on almost anything. With their tiny legs and claws, they are perhaps the most versatile little climbers on the land. Now, get rid of those plastic or rubber climbing sticks. Setup pieces of Cholla Wood to add some height in their habitat and keep them entertained. They would love to climb and venture up and down on these toys making it their playground. You may even spot some naughty fellas’ taking a nap atop.
  • ✔PROVIDES A SECURE HIDEAWAY --- These little climbers are also great hiders and would bury themselves for many different reasons such as shedding, resting, cooling down or simply having fun with their “me time”. Comes in a pack of 3, you can arrange SunGrow Cholla Wood as you wish to make crevices or caves giving your pet areas to hide and rest. A Connectable Coco Tunnel Hut by SunGrow can help complement your crabitat for such activities.
  • ✔DIRECTIONS FOR USAGE ---. When you receive your order, make sure that you soak it in hot/boiling saltwater and sundry it before placing it into the tank. Once you have waterlogged them, arrange them beautifully, and maximize all the visual and functional benefits these woods can provide. Please note since it is a raw product, not each piece will have a similar girth, which further adds a hint of realism because your crabs won’t see the same logs thrice.

"I LOVE IT!"

After a little online research, I decided to buy mopane driftwood for my Fluval 2. It just brings it a little closer to the 7 range. My son got these for his turtle and gecko aquariums. I received it today and am very happy with what i got. I like aquariums to be and look as realistic as possible. All pieces were nice size for my 5 gallon tank. The pieces can be trimmed if needed and positioned as you need for placement.
