CURRENT First Impressions

"Yes years."

I couldn't be happier with my purchase. Just what I wanted, couldn't be happier! I was originally going to buy the black version, but it sold out before I could. My son got these for his turtle and gecko aquariums. I am assuming every piece looks different. These are about the size of a double fist. 3 pieces of Cholla cactus wood, Boiled and put in Aquarium, all is good.

CURRENT Final Thoughts

"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.

Manzanita Driftwood First Impressions

"It is totally harmless."

I was unsure when I ordered what type of wood they would be. It blends wonderfully with my other natural decor. I have another 5 Gallon Marine and Portrait to setup. I love them and they were packaged well. I was originally going to buy the black version, but it sold out before I could. However, you can find plenty of 3-5 piece packs out there around this price. The branches need to be securely assembled to avoid them coming loose and floating.

Manzanita Driftwood Final Thoughts

"I'm just being picky."

The branches need to be securely assembled to avoid them coming loose and floating. I recieved a Fluval Mopani Driftwood. Don't scrub too hard or you'll take off the color on the piece. Gave a very realistic look to my 10 gallon tank. You could also leave off a section branch and use it separately in your design. The mopane wood is two-toned, with a very light tone and a black tone. It's a great set for creating a focal point in a 15 gallon or under tank.

"Its a perfect fit."

I am rarely a fan of artificial aquarium decor. This is acceptable to me, because my water stays clean and clear, despite the tint. So perfect for setting the mood in my little tank. One thing to note is these branches are quite large. They say to boil it, but I can't find a pot big enough to do so. 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.

Finn’s Forest Final Thoughts

"5 inches at it's tallest."

It is a hardwood and doesn't float, so you won't need to anchor it at all. Would buy again if I ever get a larger tank. Overall, I'm satisfied with the product. They've made great hiding spots for my catfish. It comes in black, which gives drama to the hardscape. They have great color and character. Don't scrub too hard or you'll take off the color on the piece.

For the price, I received 5 useful and interesting pieces. This is acceptable to me, because my water stays clean and clear, despite the tint. Mine is 2 tone, darker, and unique shape. After a little online research, I decided to buy mopane driftwood for my Fluval 2. I was originally going to buy the black version, but it sold out before I could. I rinsed the drift wood several times. Should have soaked it longer but oh well hopefully it will clear up soon.

Great for a small tank as a centerpiece or to fill out a big tank. Adds a great natural look to your aquarium. The clean water pic is after 7 days and 3 full water changes. When I stand back and look at it, it looks really great. I am assuming every piece looks different. Very happy with product and fast shipping and receiving. I was pleasantly surprised at the weighted base, made it easy to install.

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.

JOR Final Thoughts

"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.

"5 inches at it's tallest."

Somewhat smaller in diameter than I assumed. All pieces were nice size for my 5 gallon tank. Overall, the purchase is definitely worth it. If you have a small tank this is a problem. Great customer service as I had a few branches missing. I really love the piece and it was well worth what I paid for it. I am assuming every piece looks different.

"Very pleased."

Boiled for an hour and plaved in tank. I have another 5 Gallon Marine and Portrait to setup. This was a very large but great realistic piece for our aquarium. But up close it is obvious where the branches connect and makes it look fake. It just brings it a little closer to the 7 range. Make sure you boil the item before adding to your set up. Mine is 2 tone, darker, and unique shape.

"Length as advertised."

It just brings it a little closer to the 7 range. This alone will not drop it to the low numbers some fish need. Depending on the type of wood this may take months to go away. Arrived today and I'm very pleased with quality for the price. Mostly straighter bits of wood in the lake bottom, etc. Be sure to follow the directions for de-tanning the wood. It's a great set for creating a focal point in a 15 gallon or under tank.

After a little online research, I decided to buy mopane driftwood for my Fluval 2. I then soaked it in a bucket overnight with hot water. I've now ordered 2 large and 2 medium. Decent size around 4-6 inches each. So perfect for setting the mood in my little tank. They will fill in blank space nicely and are weighted to prevent floating.
