"I have a 75gal."

Mostly straighter bits of wood in the lake bottom, etc. I have a newly established tank for my Green Spotted puffers. I boiled mine for two hours and the water was almost black. Great customer service as I had a few branches missing. Just what I wanted, couldn't be happier! We wanted something simple& classy for our aquarium& this really fit the bill! Somewhat smaller in diameter than I assumed.

SoShrimp Final Thoughts

"Can't wait to unpack."

Decent size around 4-6 inches each. I am very big on using natural materials when I aquascape. Because of this, I ordered another one and it's at my front door now. Item was replaced in a very timely manner. I am very big on using natural materials when I aquascape. I then left it in cold water doing an occasional change for almost 2 weeks. It provides a decent, natural-looking refuge for smaller fish and other creatures.

"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.

"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.

"They did not float."

It's a lottery when buying driftwood online. I am glad it is in my tank and adds something natural that the fish should enjoy. Decent size around 4-6 inches each. After a little online research, I decided to buy mopane driftwood for my Fluval 2. My filter should take care of any water discoloration from this driftwood. I have not had any trouble with them hurting my fish. It provides a decent, natural-looking refuge for smaller fish and other creatures.

"Beautiful pieces."

These are about the size of a double fist. Make sure you boil the item before adding to your set up. If I had gotten small pieces I would have boiled them. I have a newly established tank for my Green Spotted puffers. I received some nice pieces for sure. I feel the seller provides precisely what they offer. This was a very large but great realistic piece for our aquarium.

"Well pleased."

It comes in black, which gives drama to the hardscape. It blends wonderfully with my other natural decor. If I had gotten small pieces I would have boiled them. I love how this project fits in my leopard geckos tank she loves it. A little apprehensive after reading some reviews. Covered in moss for extra protection. You roll the dice and don't know what you're going to get.

"I might buy again."

I have a newly established tank for my Green Spotted puffers. The ones I received were five pieces of mopani. Depending on the type of wood this may take months to go away. It even had small branches correctly located to do my mount! I am impatient and don't want to wait to soak. I received some nice pieces for sure. Great for a small tank as a centerpiece or to fill out a big tank.

"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.

"Great purchase."

Boiled them for several hours then let dry in the full sun. Nice twisted pieces with some personality. My shrimp and fish love it plus it looks great in the tank. I highly recommend this driftwood and I would buy it again. This was a very large but great realistic piece for our aquarium. It has live plants, and last week I finally added the fish. They will fill in blank space nicely and are weighted to prevent floating.

  • JOR Branchy Cholla Wood for Hermit Crabs, Beautiful Tank Décor, Climbing and Chewing Toy, Ideal Place for Hiding, Shedding and Resting, for DIY Projects and Gift Ideas, 1 Pc per Pack
  • ✔EXCEPTIONAL AND UNIQUE BRANCHY DÉCOR FOR CRABITATS --- A piece of driftwood from a dried cactus skeleton, Branchy Cholla Wood makes a perfect accent to your crab’s habitat. It has two branches, and the main one has a length of about 17” (43 cm) while the second branch reaches out to a width of approximately 9” (23 cm). As a raw product, each wood carries its unique, distinctive holes, curves, and knots.
  • ✔HERMIES’ PLAYGROUND AND HIDEAWAY -- Despite their names, Hermit crabs are social creatures and live in pairs or groups. When you setup this beautiful driftwood in their habitat, they will instinctively crawl, explore and climb up and down. The additional elevation will excite them. On days that they will need alone time, this can serve as a hiding or resting spot. Breaks or naps on comfortable bedding such as this branchy wood will make them feel less stressed and exposed.
  • ✔TWO-WAY FOOD SOURCE --- Hermies are not fussy eaters. In their native habitat, they eat leaf litter, grasses, plants, fallen fruits, and decaying wood. Adding this branchy wood in their habitat will give them a munching treat. Furthermore, elements grow on this driftwood, which is another source of food for them.
  • ✔SHEDDING SPOT FOR ISOLATION TANKS --- Part of a growing hermit crab’s development is shedding their exoskeletons once or twice a year. Place this driftwood in their incubation tank, so they can bury themselves here.During this period, they create new hard covering to accommodate their larger bodies.
  • ✔FOR ENDLESS CREATIVE PROJECT IDEAS --- This piece of branchy wood’s beauty can go beyond terrariums. Its rustic appeal can help you develop some decorative DIY projects like a candle holder, wreath, and an attractive planter for air and home plants. It also works well as a gift item. The recipients will not just appreciate your thought but will adore its unique design too.

"6 of them to be exact."

I am glad it is in my tank and adds something natural that the fish should enjoy. The quality is really good and it looked really pretty sitting in my empty tank. I changed the soaking water 3 times. I got a small piece and it is fairly large. They have great color and character. I love them and they were packaged well. Two pieces each individually taped up and no breakage.

Overall, if you need a few smaller pieces of wood, this should work for you. I have a newly established tank for my Green Spotted puffers. Covered in moss for extra protection. Be sure to follow the directions for de-tanning the wood. I really love the piece and it was well worth what I paid for it. This alone will not drop it to the low numbers some fish need. My filter should take care of any water discoloration from this driftwood.

"I was WRONG."

Nice twisted pieces with some personality. The pieces can be trimmed if needed and positioned as you need for placement. That means that you have to insert smaller plastic branches onto the trunk. My shrimp and fish love it plus it looks great in the tank. My shrimp liked to crawl around and eat off this. Hopefully in a little while they will sink. I am glad it is in my tank and adds something natural that the fish should enjoy.

"Well pleased."

Arrived today and I'm very pleased with quality for the price. I like to aquascape with realism to imitate an aquatic habitat. I received it today and am very happy with what i got. I then soaked it in a bucket overnight with hot water. I was looking for a piece of driftwood for a display application. It has live plants, and last week I finally added the fish. Water is still crystal clear and it certainly brought tremendous value to my tank.

  • SunGrow Cholla Wood, 5 Inches Long, Aquarium Decoration and Chew Toys for Small Pets, Artistic Home-Decor, Long Lasting Driftwood
  • ✔ GENUINE CHOLLA WOOD --- SunGrow Natural Cholla Wood is the dried husk of the Cholla cactus. Each pack contains 3 pieces, each 5 inches long with a hollowed centre. Simply soak for 24 to 48 hours and it’ll sink to the bottom of the tank.
  • ✔ FOR PLAYING AND HIDING --- Small shrimps, fry and fishes enjoy swimming through and hiding in the Cholla Wood to feel safe.
  • ✔ FOR CHEWING AND ADDITIONAL NUTRITION --- Larger fishes and hermit crabs sometimes chew on Cholla Wood or eat the microorganisms that grow on Cholla Wood. Reptiles, hamsters, birds and other small pets also enjoy using Cholla Wood as a safe chew toy.

Shrimp, fry, pleco, hermit crabs, fishes, even reptiles and birds love Cholla wood. PREPARATION: Before placing the product in the aquarium, rinse before use, even after boiling or soaking.

"Beautiful tree."

It's totally normal for natural wood to grow a white biofilm. Covered in moss for extra protection. Don't scrub too hard or you'll take off the color on the piece. People have also complained about the coloring of water. I'm not sure what people are expecting for this price. Slightly larger tanks can make something fit better. I love how this project fits in my leopard geckos tank she loves it.

"Beautiful piece!"

I am rarely a fan of artificial aquarium decor. I have another 5 Gallon Marine and Portrait to setup. I love the knarlyness of this wood. You MUST ACCEPT that BEFORE you order any driftwood anywhere online. It even had small branches correctly located to do my mount! These are about the size of a double fist. The stone bottom helps it not float but I still had to anchor.

  • SunGrow Cholla Wood for Shrimp, 6 Inches Long, Dried Husk of Cholla Cactus, Excellent Food Source, Aquarium or Home Decor, for Dwarf Shrimp, Hermit Crabs, Pleco, 3 Pack
  • ✔ DRIED WOOD FOR SHRIMP MUNCHING --- As the dried husk of Cholla cactus, these wood pieces are a rage amongst shrimp hobbyists. Keeping the safety of your pets in mind, the cholla wood is thorn-free, has no sharp edges and gets softer the longer it stays in your tank, cage or aquarium. Apart from being a visually interesting addition, aquarists love it for its benefits.
  • ✔ HIDING SPOT FOR BABY SHRIMP --- Fish, fry and particularly adventure loving shrimp benefit greatly from the addition of SunGrow Cholla Wood pieces to their tanks. They love to swim around or camp out in intriguing, perforated wood pieces. The cholla wood is hollowed out so that baby shrimp and other smaller species have a secure hiding spot when they are feeling vulnerable.
  • ✔ LONG TERM FOOD SOURCE --- A smart choice for any conscientious pet owner, the attractive and multi-functional SunGrow Cholla Wood pieces are more than just a climber or chew toy. The healthy cholla wood also serves as a food source that lasts for years. It provides shrimps, fish, snails, and other pets with additional nutrition. Eventually, the wood will break down and disintegrate on its own.
  • ✔ HEALTHY, NUTRITIONAL CHEW TOY --- Aquatic and terrestrial pets alike enjoying chewing on the soft, nutritional cholla wood pieces from SunGrow. After they arrive and are properly quarantined, the cholla cactus husks are ready to be placed into an underwater habitat with a pleco, glo fish and shrimp or in a dry terrarium or cage for guinea pigs, chinchillas or hamsters. The wood even works as a pecking toy for pet birds like parakeets and cockatiels.
  • ✔ BEAUTIFUL AQUARIUM DECORATION --- Each 6” x 1” (15cm x 2.5cm) piece has its own knots and bends. The slightly different appearance makes them a unique and beautiful decoration for your aquarium, water decoration or a shrimp tank. PREPARATION: Before placing the product in the aquarium, rinse before use, even after boiling or soaking. A "post-boil soak" in fresh water with a bag of activated carbon is a recommended step, too.
