"Highly recommended."

Was skeptical at first but not bad! Surprisingly, tarter I put it into the tank, I see no tanin at all. This was a very large but great realistic piece for our aquarium. The fish love it and it's a great addition to the aquarium. A little apprehensive after reading some reviews. It's a lottery when buying driftwood online. 3 pieces of Cholla cactus wood, Boiled and put in Aquarium, all is good.

"The betta loves that."

Also, there is some versatility with this product. I did have to boil it which was expected. They have great color and character. Would buy again if I ever get a larger tank. I was looking for a piece of driftwood for a display application. I feel the seller provides precisely what they offer. I am glad it is in my tank and adds something natural that the fish should enjoy.

"The turtles love it."

Will be using in my flex 15 gallon, along with some more wood! I bought three of these and all three are only 11 inches long at their longest edge. After a little online research, I decided to buy mopane driftwood for my Fluval 2. They've made great hiding spots for my catfish. Adds a great natural look to your aquarium. Nice twisted pieces with some personality. It even had small branches correctly located to do my mount!

"You won't regret it."

When I stand back and look at it, it looks really great. You can bend and trim to some extent to help conform it to your particular space. They have great color and character. The water was clear enough for me to use. Hopefully in a little while they will sink. I am very big on using natural materials when I aquascape. Covered in moss for extra protection.

I am rarely a fan of artificial aquarium decor. When I stand back and look at it, it looks really great. They have great color and character. Overall, the purchase is definitely worth it. The clean water pic is after 7 days and 3 full water changes. Just what I wanted, couldn't be happier! Not as big as I thought, but still two nice pieces!

"Can't wait to unpack."

Overall, I'm satisfied with the product. Very similar to photo and it was large. People have also complained about the coloring of water. It comes from a reliable company and is very pretty to look at. I have not had any trouble with them hurting my fish. The branches need to be securely assembled to avoid them coming loose and floating. All pieces were nice size for my 5 gallon tank.

Boiled for an hour and plaved in tank. It comes from a reliable company and is very pretty to look at. I really got lucky with the one that was chosen as it's perfect for my display.

Also, I woke up this morning to the biggest bubble nest! I then left it in cold water doing an occasional change for almost 2 weeks. Each peice is unique, which makes it fun in my eyes. They have great color and character. We wanted something simple& classy for our aquarium& this really fit the bill! Slightly larger tanks can make something fit better.

"Especially not 5 of them."

Depending on the type of wood this may take months to go away. The quality is really good and it looked really pretty sitting in my empty tank. I like the authenticity of these pieces. I love how this project fits in my leopard geckos tank she loves it. I boiled mine for two hours and the water was almost black. I was originally going to buy the black version, but it sold out before I could. The branches need to be securely assembled to avoid them coming loose and floating.

"Its a perfect fit."

I am rarely a fan of artificial aquarium decor. This is acceptable to me, because my water stays clean and clear, despite the tint. So perfect for setting the mood in my little tank. One thing to note is these branches are quite large. They say to boil it, but I can't find a pot big enough to do so. 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.

It is a hardwood and doesn't float, so you won't need to anchor it at all. Would buy again if I ever get a larger tank. Overall, I'm satisfied with the product. They've made great hiding spots for my catfish. It comes in black, which gives drama to the hardscape. They have great color and character.

"The shape is fine."

EDIT, boiled the wood for 2 hours and they sank. Also, I woke up this morning to the biggest bubble nest! I feel the seller provides precisely what they offer. Overall, if you need a few smaller pieces of wood, this should work for you. I am very big on using natural materials when I aquascape. When I stand back and look at it, it looks really great. Overall, if you need a few smaller pieces of wood, this should work for you.

  • SunGrow Hermit Crab Cholla Woods, Climbing Logs, Chew Toy and Source of Nutrition, Fun and Stimulating Activity for Little Climbers, Long Dried Terrarium Décor Adds Raw Beauty
  • ✔ 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. Thus to have this wood in their habitat is important. They love to chew this wood which gives them an additional source of nutrition. 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 as their playground. You may even spot some naughty fellas’ taking a nap atop.
  • ✔ PROVIDES A HIDEAWAY SPOT --- These little climbers are also great hiders and would bury themselves for many different reasons such as molting, resting, cooling down or simply when they want to have their “me time”. Comes in a pack of 2, you can arrange SunGrow Cholla Wood as you wish to make crevices or caves giving your pets’ areas to hide and rest. Connectable Coco Tunnel Hut by SunGrow can help complement your crabitat for such activities.
  • ✔ CREATE PICTURESQUE HABITAT FOR CRABS --- Hermit Crabs are uncomplicated pets to take care of. However, their health should not be taken for granted. The 2-piece Cholla Woods by SunGrow is a 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 development.
  • ✔ DIRECTIONS FOR USAGE ---. When you receive your order, make sure that you soak it in hot/boiling salt water and sun dry 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 being a raw product, each piece will not have a similar girth, which further adds a hint of realism because your crabs won’t see the same logs six times.

SunGrow Final Thoughts

"5 inches at it's tallest."

Be sure to follow the directions for de-tanning the wood. My aquarium has been up and running for a few weeks now. Not as big as I thought, but still two nice pieces! I highly recommend this driftwood and I would buy it again. My shrimp and fish love it plus it looks great in the tank. My shrimp liked to crawl around and eat off this. I was originally going to buy the black version, but it sold out before I could.

It comes in black, which gives drama to the hardscape. It blends wonderfully with my other natural decor. If I had gotten small pieces I would have boiled them. I love how this project fits in my leopard geckos tank she loves it. A little apprehensive after reading some reviews. Covered in moss for extra protection.
