"You won't regret it."

I am assuming every piece looks different. We wanted something simple& classy for our aquarium& this really fit the bill! The pieces can be trimmed if needed and positioned as you need for placement. EDIT, boiled the wood for 2 hours and they sank. I recieved a Fluval Mopani Driftwood. Each peice is unique, which makes it fun in my eyes. This alone will not drop it to the low numbers some fish need.

"Also have 7 neon tetras."

They say to boil it, but I can't find a pot big enough to do so. The first is you won't know what you have until it comes. Photos show first and second order. Should have soaked it longer but oh well hopefully it will clear up soon. Item was replaced in a very timely manner. Nice twisted pieces with some personality. Just what I wanted, couldn't be happier!

"Not even a little."

My shrimp and fish love it plus it looks great in the tank. I bought three of these and all three are only 11 inches long at their longest edge. If you have a small tank this is a problem. Overall, if you need a few smaller pieces of wood, this should work for you. Unfortunately, these give off a ton of tannins. I left it to soak in tap water at room temperature while I sat up my aquarium. Overall, if you need a few smaller pieces of wood, this should work for you.

"Great purchase."

The fish love it and it's a great addition to the aquarium. It comes from a reliable company and is very pretty to look at. My son got these for his turtle and gecko aquariums. I feel the seller provides precisely what they offer. Photos show first and second order. I rinsed the drift wood several times. The branches do not bend, but the joints can be rotated to get different positions.

"Length as advertised."

We wanted something simple& classy for our aquarium& this really fit the bill! Covered in moss for extra protection. I am impatient and don't want to wait to soak. Based on other reviews some things are certain. It comes in black, which gives drama to the hardscape. The ones I received were five pieces of mopani. All natural product what looks great.

"Looks beautiful when wet."

You can bend and trim to some extent to help conform it to your particular space. I did have to boil it which was expected. Surprisingly, tarter I put it into the tank, I see no tanin at all. I was looking for a piece of driftwood for a display application. The pieces can be trimmed if needed and positioned as you need for placement. Just what I wanted, couldn't be happier! I like to aquascape with realism to imitate an aquatic habitat.

"Its a perfect fit."

This was a very large but great realistic piece for our aquarium. They will fill in blank space nicely and are weighted to prevent floating. If I had gotten small pieces I would have boiled them. It comes from a reliable company and is very pretty to look at. The water was clear enough for me to use. Unfortunately, these give off a ton of tannins. Item was replaced in a very timely manner.

"High quality wood."

Great customer service as I had a few branches missing. The quality is really good and it looked really pretty sitting in my empty tank. They have great color and character. The fish love it and it's a great addition to the aquarium. I am glad it is in my tank and adds something natural that the fish should enjoy. EDIT, boiled the wood for 2 hours and they sank. They've made great hiding spots for my catfish.

"I still like it."

Hopefully in a little while they will sink. Adds a great natural look to your aquarium. My filter should take care of any water discoloration from this driftwood. All pieces were nice size for my 5 gallon tank. I will add photo once my tank is all setup next week. The clean water pic is after 7 days and 3 full water changes. You could also leave off a section branch and use it separately in your design.

  • Tfwadmx Aquarium Driftwood, Spider Wood Sinkable Driftwood for Fish Tank Decorations Natural Branches for Reptile
  • 100% NATURAL WOOD MATERIAL -- Aquarium driftwood is made of natural trees grown in the rainforest of Vietnam. It has the texture of driftwood and the branches of azalea roots. After sinking, it will not deteriorate or damage the water quality.
  • SIZE -- Package includes 3pcs driftwood. Sizes varies from 3.9 to 9.8 inches in length. It is safe for all pets. Shrimps, fish fry, hermit crabs, fish, and even reptiles love driftwood.
  • SMALL AND VERSATILE -- Complex and bizarre shape. Perfect for reptiles to climb on. It can be placed in the aquarium for decoration, adding aesthetics to your fish tank. It’s an indispensable landscaping item. It can also soften water quality and adjust PH value.
  • LOW MAINTENANCE -- Unlike live plants, aquarium driftwood decorations do not require oxygen or fertilizer. You can combine driftwood with moss or other plants to create a landscape of the fish tank.
  • NOTICE -- Some driftwood needs to be soaked in water for several hours to sink to the bottom and will slightly discolor. This wood is a substitute for azalea roots and sinks faster than it does. Before you put the driftwood into water, you’d better soak for 15 minutes or boil.
  • This is a driftwood suitable for decoration in fish tanks or for reptiles to climb on.

"It's very nice."

However, that is exactly what you find in a natural environment. If I had gotten small pieces I would have boiled them. I did have to boil it which was expected. Make sure you boil the item before adding to your set up. You have NO IDEA what it will look like, or how big it will actually be. The first is you won't know what you have until it comes. Mine is 2 tone, darker, and unique shape.

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!
