"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.

"High quality wood."

The mopane wood is two-toned, with a very light tone and a black tone. People have also complained about the coloring of water. Surprisingly, tarter I put it into the tank, I see no tanin at all. I really got lucky with the one that was chosen as it's perfect for my display. Don't scrub too hard or you'll take off the color on the piece. The pieces can be trimmed if needed and positioned as you need for placement. Very similar to photo and it was large.

"I just over-imagined!"

I've now ordered 2 large and 2 medium. One thing to note is these branches are quite large. All natural product what looks great. You have NO IDEA what it will look like, or how big it will actually be. You roll the dice and don't know what you're going to get. Because of this, I ordered another one and it's at my front door now. Not as big as I thought, but still two nice pieces!

"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.

"Great purchase."

I like the authenticity of these pieces. You have NO IDEA what it will look like, or how big it will actually be. Don't scrub too hard or you'll take off the color on the piece. Covered in moss for extra protection. The water was clear enough for me to use. Item was replaced in a very timely manner. Overall, if you need a few smaller pieces of wood, this should work for you.

"It's very nice."

He is saving the other driftwood for a tomato frog he wants. I got a small piece and it is fairly large. You could also leave off a section branch and use it separately in your design. I am very big on using natural materials when I aquascape. I am glad it is in my tank and adds something natural that the fish should enjoy. It's totally normal for natural wood to grow a white biofilm. You can just scrape or brush it off and suck it up with a water change.

"I'm just being picky."

I like the authenticity of these pieces. It comes from a reliable company and is very pretty to look at. I have another 5 Gallon Marine and Portrait to setup. I received some nice pieces for sure. 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.

"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.

"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.

I have not had any trouble with them hurting my fish. It comes from a reliable company and is very pretty to look at. You roll the dice and don't know what you're going to get. But up close it is obvious where the branches connect and makes it look fake. Arrived today and I'm very pleased with quality for the price. I boiled mine for two hours and the water was almost black. I love how this project fits in my leopard geckos tank she loves it.

"Still pretty tho!"

I will add photo once my tank is all setup next week. I like aquariums to be and look as realistic as possible. The pieces can be trimmed if needed and positioned as you need for placement. My shrimp liked to crawl around and eat off this. Covered in moss for extra protection. If I had gotten small pieces I would have boiled them. Because of this, I ordered another one and it's at my front door now.

"The size is fine."

After a little online research, I decided to buy mopane driftwood for my Fluval 2. It has live plants, and last week I finally added the fish. Also, there is some versatility with this product. The one I received looked better than the online photo. Boiled them for several hours then let dry in the full sun. I rinsed the drift wood several times. Very happy with product and fast shipping and receiving.

"This really does work."

I am going to boil it tomorrow and then let it sit in water until the tank comes. For the price, I received 5 useful and interesting pieces. I have a larger tank over 50 gallons to 2 worked for my purposes. I was originally going to buy the black version, but it sold out before I could. I then soaked it in a bucket overnight with hot water. EDIT, boiled the wood for 2 hours and they sank. Photos show first and second order.
