Cobalt Aquatics 45022 First Impressions

"Worth every penny."

The one I received looked better than the online photo. The first is you won't know what you have until it comes. This alone will not drop it to the low numbers some fish need. However, this particular product is exceptional. Photos show first and second order. Should have soaked it longer but oh well hopefully it will clear up soon. My shrimp liked to crawl around and eat off this.

Cobalt Aquatics 45022 Final Thoughts

"It's very nice."

Very happy with product and fast shipping and receiving. Boiled them for several hours then let dry in the full sun. I cant wait to see what it will look like. I really got lucky with the one that was chosen as it's perfect for my display. Boiled for an hour and plaved in tank. It blends wonderfully with my other natural decor. Two pieces each individually taped up and no breakage.

2. Amtra Plain Cork Bark, 55 x 30 cm

Amtra A8050151 First Impressions

"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.

"The size is fine."

Not as big as I thought, but still two nice pieces! All natural product what looks great. Surprisingly, tarter I put it into the tank, I see no tanin at all. The mopane wood is two-toned, with a very light tone and a black tone. I really got lucky with the one that was chosen as it's perfect for my display. 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.

"One looks a little blah."

You can just scrape or brush it off and suck it up with a water change. Boiled them for several hours then let dry in the full sun. It comes in black, which gives drama to the hardscape. I like the authenticity of these pieces. So perfect for setting the mood in my little tank. Nice twisted pieces with some personality. I cant wait to see what it will look like.

"Also, I love this wood!"

I love the knarlyness of this wood. But up close it is obvious where the branches connect and makes it look fake. Make sure you boil the item before adding to your set up. Make sure you boil the item before adding to your set up. I am very big on using natural materials when I aquascape. It's a lottery when buying driftwood online.

"Worth every penny."

I love them and they were packaged well. I am going to boil it tomorrow and then let it sit in water until the tank comes. Be sure to follow the directions for de-tanning the wood. My filter should take care of any water discoloration from this driftwood. Mostly straighter bits of wood in the lake bottom, etc. I was looking for a piece of driftwood for a display application. The ones I received were five pieces of mopani.

  • SunGrow Sunken Cholla Betta Cave, Loved by Bettas Because It Feels Like Home, Adds Texture and Interest to Your Aquascape,1-Piece per Pack
  • ✓ MAKE THEIR HOME HOMIER --- Bettas come from the rice pads of Thailand so they instinctually crave caves and little hiding holes and the cholla cave by SunGrow gives them refuge from your tank’s current.
  • ✓ EXOTIC ZENLIKE DECOR --- Each one of SunGrow’s cholla caves is a one-of-a-kind creative work that will add beauty, texture, and interest to your aquascape. Watching your betta coming and going out of their little hideouts is sure to give you a calming effect.

  • ✓ NO PLASTIC, GLUE, OR NASTIES --- We had made slight modifications to this raw product because your pet deserves the best. Cholla contains wood elements that are beneficial with wood elements. We would recommend to boil the cholla and rinse in freshwater before adding to your Siamese fish’s home.

"The second arrived today."

I'm not sure what people are expecting for this price. The stone bottom helps it not float but I still had to anchor. My shrimp liked to crawl around and eat off this. My shrimp and fish love it plus it looks great in the tank. I then soaked it in a bucket overnight with hot water. Because of this, I ordered another one and it's at my front door now. Boiled them for several hours then let dry in the full sun.

"5gal tank!"

I am assuming every piece looks different. The water was clear enough for me to use. Gave a very realistic look to my 10 gallon tank. I left it to soak in tap water at room temperature while I sat up my aquarium. Slightly larger tanks can make something fit better. Make sure you boil the item before adding to your set up. I am impatient and don't want to wait to soak.
