"Who knows."

It's totally normal for natural wood to grow a white biofilm. When I stand back and look at it, it looks really great. I recieved a Fluval Mopani Driftwood. I was originally going to buy the black version, but it sold out before I could. I am very big on using natural materials when I aquascape. I received it today and am very happy with what i got. The stone bottom helps it not float but I still had to anchor.

"This really does work."

I am going to boil it tomorrow and then let it sit in water until the tank comes. For the price, I received 5 useful and interesting pieces. I have a larger tank over 50 gallons to 2 worked for my purposes. I was originally going to buy the black version, but it sold out before I could. I then soaked it in a bucket overnight with hot water. EDIT, boiled the wood for 2 hours and they sank. Photos show first and second order.

"5 gallon tank."

It just brings it a little closer to the 7 range. The mopane wood is two-toned, with a very light tone and a black tone. I did have to boil it which was expected. When I stand back and look at it, it looks really great. The one I received looked better than the online photo. The stone bottom helps it not float but I still had to anchor. So perfect for setting the mood in my little tank.

"No floaters."

They have great color and character. You have NO IDEA what it will look like, or how big it will actually be. Will be using in my flex 15 gallon, along with some more wood! It provides a decent, natural-looking refuge for smaller fish and other creatures. I am very big on using natural materials when I aquascape. I really got lucky with the one that was chosen as it's perfect for my display. Overall, I'm satisfied with the product.

"I'm just being picky."

I love them and they were packaged well. I've now ordered 2 large and 2 medium. I received some nice pieces for sure. It even had small branches correctly located to do my mount! My shrimp liked to crawl around and eat off this. Should have soaked it longer but oh well hopefully it will clear up soon. I received some nice pieces for sure.

"5gal tank!"

You can bend and trim to some extent to help conform it to your particular space. Based on other reviews some things are certain. I have not had any trouble with them hurting my fish. For the price, I received 5 useful and interesting pieces. When I stand back and look at it, it looks really great. I will add photo once my tank is all setup next week. It comes in black, which gives drama to the hardscape.

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.

"Looks and works great."

I have a larger tank over 50 gallons to 2 worked for my purposes. These are about the size of a double fist. The clean water pic is after 7 days and 3 full water changes. It has live plants, and last week I finally added the fish. I boiled mine for two hours and the water was almost black. It's a great set for creating a focal point in a 15 gallon or under tank. Was skeptical at first but not bad!

"Who knows."

I was originally going to buy the black version, but it sold out before I could. Mostly straighter bits of wood in the lake bottom, etc. The water makes the wood a beautiful brown color. For the price, I received 5 useful and interesting pieces. A little apprehensive after reading some reviews. Surprisingly, tarter I put it into the tank, I see no tanin at all. The stone bottom helps it not float but I still had to anchor.

"One looks a little blah."

Gave a very realistic look to my 10 gallon tank. Be sure to follow the directions for de-tanning the wood. Make sure you boil the item before adding to your set up. Somewhat smaller in diameter than I assumed. It's a great set for creating a focal point in a 15 gallon or under tank. I rinsed the drift wood several times. I received some nice pieces for sure.

"Thank you."

Overall, if you need a few smaller pieces of wood, this should work for you. The branches do not bend, but the joints can be rotated to get different positions. I like aquariums to be and look as realistic as possible. The pieces can be trimmed if needed and positioned as you need for placement. I really got lucky with the one that was chosen as it's perfect for my display. That means that you have to insert smaller plastic branches onto the trunk. I was pleasantly surprised at the weighted base, made it easy to install.

User Ratings: 62

JOR First Impressions

"I have a 75gal."

I was originally going to buy the black version, but it sold out before I could. You could also leave off a section branch and use it separately in your design. I am rarely a fan of artificial aquarium decor. I am impatient and don't want to wait to soak. I cant wait to see what it will look like. I rinsed the drift wood several times. It's totally normal for natural wood to grow a white biofilm.

  • JOR Hermit Crab Log Woods, 5" Inches Long, Climbing Wood, Chew Toy, Stimulating Activity for Little Climbers, Long Dried Terrarium Décor Adds Raw Beauty, 3 Pieces
  • ✔ SAY GOODBYE TO PLASTIC TOYS --- Hermit crabs prefer to remain active and they just LOVE Toys! There are many varieties of hermie toys available in the market, but why not give them the unprocessed alternative? Our dried cholla (or choya) wood makes up for the plastic alternative toy. This is not just a climbing toy for them. They can eat it too without any adverse effect on their health.
  • ✔ TAKING CARE OF YOUR HERMIE --- While setting up the crab’s enclosure, it is essential to provide them with areas to move about and things to climb on. With their tiny legs and claws, they are perhaps the most versatile little climbers. Get rid of those plastic or rubber climbing sticks. See them venturing up and down on these toys making it their playground. You may even spot some naughty fellas’ taking a nap atop.
  • ✔ PROVIDES A HIDEAWAY SPOT --- These decapod crustaceans are also great hiders and would bury themselves for many different reasons such as shedding, resting, cooling down or simply when they want to have their “me time”. Comes in a pack of 3, you can arrange Jor Cholla Wood as you wish to make crevices or caves giving your pets’ areas to hide and rest. If you have more than one hermit crab, add more of these to give them privacy to each.
  • ✔ EXCELLENT ADDITIONAL FOOD SOURCE --- Hermit crabs are omnivore and scavenging is a typical way to look for food. They have plenty of options available in the wild to pursue this activity. But when they are with you, it is important you provide them with these logs. They’ll love to chew on this wood which serves them an additional source of energy. We bet, your hermies would love this addition.
  • ✔ 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 is 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 log each time.

"Looks beautiful when wet."

I recieved a Fluval Mopani Driftwood. All in all, we are very happy with our purchase! Be sure to follow the directions for de-tanning the wood. That means that you have to insert smaller plastic branches onto the trunk. Nice twisted pieces with some personality. It just brings it a little closer to the 7 range. I rinsed the drift wood several times.

Awawood First Impressions

"Hermit Crabs love it!"

My shrimp liked to crawl around and eat off this. You roll the dice and don't know what you're going to get. The branches need to be securely assembled to avoid them coming loose and floating. This was a very large but great realistic piece for our aquarium. Hopefully in a little while they will sink. Water is still crystal clear and it certainly brought tremendous value to my tank. I boiled mine for two hours and the water was almost black.

"One looks a little blah."

Slightly larger tanks can make something fit better. He is saving the other driftwood for a tomato frog he wants. When I stand back and look at it, it looks really great. Nice twisted pieces with some personality. The quality is really good and it looked really pretty sitting in my empty tank. Would buy again if I ever get a larger tank. I got a small piece and it is fairly large.

Photos show first and second order. A little apprehensive after reading some reviews. I then soaked it in a bucket overnight with hot water. Great for a small tank as a centerpiece or to fill out a big tank. I then left it in cold water doing an occasional change for almost 2 weeks. I like to aquascape with realism to imitate an aquatic habitat. Covered in moss for extra protection.

"I might buy again."

Slightly larger tanks can make something fit better. The fish love it and it's a great addition to the aquarium. However, you can find plenty of 3-5 piece packs out there around this price. I am impatient and don't want to wait to soak. However, this particular product is exceptional. You can bend and trim to some extent to help conform it to your particular space. 3 pieces of Cholla cactus wood, Boiled and put in Aquarium, all is good.

If I had gotten small pieces I would have boiled them. It just brings it a little closer to the 7 range. The fish love it and it's a great addition to the aquarium. You MUST ACCEPT that BEFORE you order any driftwood anywhere online. They have great color and character. Two pieces each individually taped up and no breakage. I recieved a Fluval Mopani Driftwood.
