"Worth every penny."

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. This is acceptable to me, because my water stays clean and clear, despite the tint. I was unsure when I ordered what type of wood they would be. Make sure you boil the item before adding to your set up. This alone will not drop it to the low numbers some fish need. I have another 5 Gallon Marine and Portrait to setup.

Amtra A8047547 Final Thoughts

"Great purchase."

It blends wonderfully with my other natural decor. It's a lottery when buying driftwood online. My filter should take care of any water discoloration from this driftwood. I bought three of these and all three are only 11 inches long at their longest edge. I changed the soaking water 3 times. I'm not sure what people are expecting for this price. Mostly straighter bits of wood in the lake bottom, etc.

"One looks a little blah."

Very happy with product and fast shipping and receiving. I am impatient and don't want to wait to soak. It's totally normal for natural wood to grow a white biofilm. Overall, the purchase is definitely worth it. I am very big on using natural materials when I aquascape. I recieved a Fluval Mopani Driftwood. Great customer service as I had a few branches missing.

"So no complaints."

I rinsed the drift wood several times. Two pieces each individually taped up and no breakage. You roll the dice and don't know what you're going to get. All pieces were nice size for my 5 gallon tank. I am going to boil it tomorrow and then let it sit in water until the tank comes. Very happy with product and fast shipping and receiving. EDIT, boiled the wood for 2 hours and they sank.

"These seem pretty solid."

It provides a decent, natural-looking refuge for smaller fish and other creatures. Somewhat smaller in diameter than I assumed. I was originally going to buy the black version, but it sold out before I could. We wanted something simple& classy for our aquarium& this really fit the bill! I really got lucky with the one that was chosen as it's perfect for my display. So perfect for setting the mood in my little tank. I have a newly established tank for my Green Spotted puffers.

"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.
  • ✓ FOR CHEWING AND ADDITIONAL NUTRITION --- The Siamese Fighting fish loves chewing on the Cholla Wood. Not just betta fish, reptiles, hamsters, birds, and other small pets also enjoy using Cholla Wood as a chew toy.
  • ✓ IDEAL ANCHOR FOR AQUATIC PLANTS --- Our beautiful wood, cut to an exacting 3” x 2” (7.6cm x 5cm), is a perfect anchor for aquatic moss. Veiltails thrive in aquariums with privacy because it’s closest to their home.
  • ✓ 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.

"I'm so glad I did."

My shrimp liked to crawl around and eat off this. I am going to boil it tomorrow and then let it sit in water until the tank comes. I was unsure when I ordered what type of wood they would be. It's a lottery when buying driftwood online. Photos show first and second order. However, that is exactly what you find in a natural environment. Make sure you boil the item before adding to your set up.

Not as big as I thought, but still two nice pieces! 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.

"75 inches in length."

I like the authenticity of these pieces. The stone bottom helps it not float but I still had to anchor. I like aquariums to be and look as realistic as possible. They say to boil it, but I can't find a pot big enough to do so. He is saving the other driftwood for a tomato frog he wants. I then soaked it in a bucket overnight with hot water. 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. This was a very large but great realistic piece for our aquarium. The first is you won't know what you have until it comes.

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! The mopane wood is two-toned, with a very light tone and a black tone. My aquarium has been up and running for a few weeks now.

"Who knows."

After a little online research, I decided to buy mopane driftwood for my Fluval 2. Because of this, I ordered another one and it's at my front door now. The fish love it and it's a great addition to the aquarium. The first is you won't know what you have until it comes. I love how this project fits in my leopard geckos tank she loves it. It comes from a reliable company and is very pretty to look at. I have not had any trouble with them hurting my fish.

  • SunGrow Cholla Wood, 6 Inches Long, Encourage Exercise, Create Basking Spot, Creative Addition to DIY Home Crafts, Great Accent Piece, 2-Pcs
  • ✔ PROVIDE ESSENTIAL ENERGY TO BETTA DIET --- The Siamese Fighting fish, popularly known as the betta fish require a well-balanced diet with plenty of fiber for proper digestion. The two wood logs by SunGrow is an excellent source of fiber to help keep your pet fish happy and healthy. By placing a piece of this wood in your aquarium, not only are you providing your betta with the fibrous matter, but you’ll also be creating a space where delicious food can grow for them to eat.
  • ✔ PROVIDE BENEFICIAL TEA WATER TO YOUR BETTA --- Similar to catappa or Indian almond leaves, SunGrow Betta Wood releases beneficial elements into the aquarium water. As the two wood pieces begin to soften, they release helpful particles that protects your fish against avoidable malady. Over time, the betta wood will fully break down and help with the plant growth.
  • ✔ RECREATE BETTA’S NATIVE ENVIRONMENT --- In the wild, betta fish can live in freshwater or brackish waters and are highly adaptable to wide ranges of temperature and water quality. This gourami family fish likes hiding places and darker spaces to hang out during the day. The two 6” x 1” pieces of wood from SunGrow provide just the right cover for your fish.
  • ✔ ATTRACTIVE, RUSTIC AQUARIUM DECORATION --- Aside from all of the practical benefits of the SunGrow Betta Wood, they also add rustic beauty to your aquascape. The wood for Betta splendens can be placed on its own inside your tank to show off its visually interesting porous structure and soft texture. They can also be used as functional, attractive aquatic plant bases for anubias, java fern, and other aquatic mosses.
  • ✔ SUITABLE FOR NUMEROUS SPECIES OF FISH --- Although the two SunGrow Betta Wood pieces are extra special for these tropical betta fish, they are also highly advantageous to other species of aquatic and land pets. Hermit crabs love to crawl atop this driftwood while betta fish enjoy swimming through the hollow center. The food that grows on this wood is a great food source for shrimp.

SunGrow Final Thoughts

"Very interesting looking."

The clean water pic is after 7 days and 3 full water changes. I really love the piece and it was well worth what I paid for it. The quality is really good and it looked really pretty sitting in my empty tank. I am assuming every piece looks different. But up close it is obvious where the branches connect and makes it look fake. It provides a decent, natural-looking refuge for smaller fish and other creatures. It even had small branches correctly located to do my mount!

"They love them!"

They've made great hiding spots for my catfish. It's a lottery when buying driftwood online. I was originally going to buy the black version, but it sold out before I could. I boiled mine for two hours and the water was almost black. You MUST ACCEPT that BEFORE you order any driftwood anywhere online. I have not had any trouble with them hurting my fish. I left it to soak in tap water at room temperature while I sat up my aquarium.

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 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.
