"These seem pretty solid."

However, this particular product is exceptional. I like the authenticity of these pieces. The ones I received were five pieces of mopani. I received it today and am very happy with what i got. People have also complained about the coloring of water. My aquarium has been up and running for a few weeks now. Great for a small tank as a centerpiece or to fill out a big tank.

NilocG Aquatics Final Thoughts

"The shrimps love it."

It even had small branches correctly located to do my mount! The ones I received were five pieces of mopani. I've now ordered 2 large and 2 medium. I have a newly established tank for my Green Spotted puffers. I am going to boil it tomorrow and then let it sit in water until the tank comes. I like to aquascape with realism to imitate an aquatic habitat. The clean water pic is after 7 days and 3 full water changes.

"It's very nice."

Just what I wanted, couldn't be happier! The fish love it and it's a great addition to the aquarium. I have not had any trouble with them hurting my fish. My shrimp and fish love it plus it looks great in the tank. I love the knarlyness of this wood. You could also leave off a section branch and use it separately in your design. Somewhat smaller in diameter than I assumed.

  • SunGrow Shrimp Woods, 5” Climbing Logs, Chew Toy, Stimulating Activity for Little Climbers, Keep Shrimps Busy and Active, Long Dried Aquarium Décor Adds Raw Beauty, 3 Pcs
  • ✔ CREATE PICTURESQUE, REALISTIC HABITAT FOR SHRIMPS--- Shrimps 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 environment needed by your pets for their overall health.
  • ✔EXCELLENT ADDITIONAL FOOD SOURCE --- For shrimps, 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 shrimps would love this addition.
  • ✔PERFECT CLIMBING TOYS --- Shrimps 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 habitat 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 shrimps won’t see the same logs thrice.

"Also, I love this wood!"

It's a great set for creating a focal point in a 15 gallon or under tank. These are about the size of a double fist. They have great color and character. These are about the size of a double fist.

"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.

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.

"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.

"Well pleased."

Arrived today and I'm very pleased with quality for the price. I like to aquascape with realism to imitate an aquatic habitat. I received it today and am very happy with what i got. I then soaked it in a bucket overnight with hot water. I was looking for a piece of driftwood for a display application. It has live plants, and last week I finally added the fish. Water is still crystal clear and it certainly brought tremendous value to my tank.

SunGrow Final Thoughts

"Beautiful tree."

It's totally normal for natural wood to grow a white biofilm. Covered in moss for extra protection. Don't scrub too hard or you'll take off the color on the piece. People have also complained about the coloring of water. I'm not sure what people are expecting for this price. Slightly larger tanks can make something fit better. I love how this project fits in my leopard geckos tank she loves it.

"Beautiful piece!"

I am rarely a fan of artificial aquarium decor. I have another 5 Gallon Marine and Portrait to setup. I love the knarlyness of this wood. You MUST ACCEPT that BEFORE you order any driftwood anywhere online. It even had small branches correctly located to do my mount! These are about the size of a double fist. The stone bottom helps it not float but I still had to anchor.

  • SunGrow Cholla Wood for Shrimp, 6 Inches Long, Dried Husk of Cholla Cactus, Excellent Food Source, Aquarium or Home Decor, for Dwarf Shrimp, Hermit Crabs, Pleco, 3 Pack
  • ✔ DRIED WOOD FOR SHRIMP MUNCHING --- As the dried husk of Cholla cactus, these wood pieces are a rage amongst shrimp hobbyists. Keeping the safety of your pets in mind, the cholla wood is thorn-free, has no sharp edges and gets softer the longer it stays in your tank, cage or aquarium. Apart from being a visually interesting addition, aquarists love it for its benefits.
  • ✔ HIDING SPOT FOR BABY SHRIMP --- Fish, fry and particularly adventure loving shrimp benefit greatly from the addition of SunGrow Cholla Wood pieces to their tanks. They love to swim around or camp out in intriguing, perforated wood pieces. The cholla wood is hollowed out so that baby shrimp and other smaller species have a secure hiding spot when they are feeling vulnerable.
  • ✔ LONG TERM FOOD SOURCE --- A smart choice for any conscientious pet owner, the attractive and multi-functional SunGrow Cholla Wood pieces are more than just a climber or chew toy. The healthy cholla wood also serves as a food source that lasts for years. It provides shrimps, fish, snails, and other pets with additional nutrition. Eventually, the wood will break down and disintegrate on its own.
  • ✔ HEALTHY, NUTRITIONAL CHEW TOY --- Aquatic and terrestrial pets alike enjoying chewing on the soft, nutritional cholla wood pieces from SunGrow. After they arrive and are properly quarantined, the cholla cactus husks are ready to be placed into an underwater habitat with a pleco, glo fish and shrimp or in a dry terrarium or cage for guinea pigs, chinchillas or hamsters. The wood even works as a pecking toy for pet birds like parakeets and cockatiels.
  • ✔ BEAUTIFUL AQUARIUM DECORATION --- Each 6” x 1” (15cm x 2.5cm) piece has its own knots and bends. The slightly different appearance makes them a unique and beautiful decoration for your aquarium, water decoration or a shrimp tank. PREPARATION: Before placing the product in the aquarium, rinse before use, even after boiling or soaking. A "post-boil soak" in fresh water with a bag of activated carbon is a recommended step, too.
