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.

Finn’s Forest First Impressions

"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.

4. Manzanita Driftwood 5lb Petrified Wood for Aquariums

Manzanita Driftwood First Impressions

"The second arrived today."

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.

I have taken pictures of the latest two that I bought. However, this particular product is exceptional. I will add photo once my tank is all setup next week. My aquarium has been up and running for a few weeks now. My aquarium has been up and running for a few weeks now. I then left it in cold water doing an occasional change for almost 2 weeks.

"A excellent purchase."

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.

You can bend and trim to some extent to help conform it to your particular space. Based on other reviews some things are certain. I have not had any trouble with them hurting my fish. For the price, I received 5 useful and interesting pieces. When I stand back and look at it, it looks really great. I will add photo once my tank is all setup next week. It comes in black, which gives drama to the hardscape.

"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.

"Hermit Crabs love it!"

Just what I wanted, couldn't be happier! They say to boil it, but I can't find a pot big enough to do so. It's totally normal for natural wood to grow a white biofilm. I like to aquascape with realism to imitate an aquatic habitat. The molding, texture, and general look is really good with this particular product. The first is you won't know what you have until it comes. Also, I woke up this morning to the biggest bubble nest!

"They love them!"

I like the authenticity of these pieces. I changed the soaking water 3 times. I rinsed the drift wood several times. My son got these for his turtle and gecko aquariums. It comes in black, which gives drama to the hardscape. Mostly straighter bits of wood in the lake bottom, etc. I've now ordered 2 large and 2 medium.

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.

"Can't wait!"

Not as big as I thought, but still two nice pieces! Make sure you boil the item before adding to your set up. My aquarium has been up and running for a few weeks now. He is saving the other driftwood for a tomato frog he wants. Decent size around 4-6 inches each. When I stand back and look at it, it looks really great. This was a very large but great realistic piece for our aquarium.
