"The shrimps love it."

Boiled for an hour and plaved in tank. It comes from a reliable company and is very pretty to look at. I really got lucky with the one that was chosen as it's perfect for my display. It's a lottery when buying driftwood online. It just brings it a little closer to the 7 range. I really love the piece and it was well worth what I paid for it. I like aquariums to be and look as realistic as possible.

"I have a 75gal."

I then soaked it in a bucket overnight with hot water. So perfect for setting the mood in my little tank. The molding, texture, and general look is really good with this particular product. I am glad it is in my tank and adds something natural that the fish should enjoy. Nice twisted pieces with some personality. The pieces can be trimmed if needed and positioned as you need for placement. Not as big as I thought, but still two nice pieces!

The stone bottom helps it not float but I still had to anchor. Decent size around 4-6 inches each. The stone bottom helps it not float but I still had to anchor.

"One looks a little blah."

Gave a very realistic look to my 10 gallon tank. Be sure to follow the directions for de-tanning the wood. Make sure you boil the item before adding to your set up. Somewhat smaller in diameter than I assumed. It's a great set for creating a focal point in a 15 gallon or under tank. I rinsed the drift wood several times. I received some nice pieces for sure.

"Thank you."

Overall, if you need a few smaller pieces of wood, this should work for you. The branches do not bend, but the joints can be rotated to get different positions. 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. I really got lucky with the one that was chosen as it's perfect for my display. That means that you have to insert smaller plastic branches onto the trunk. I was pleasantly surprised at the weighted base, made it easy to install.

3 pieces of Cholla cactus wood, Boiled and put in Aquarium, all is good. I left it to soak in tap water at room temperature while I sat up my aquarium. I rinsed the drift wood several times. I recieved a Fluval Mopani Driftwood. The first is you won't know what you have until it comes. I received it today and am very happy with what i got. After a little online research, I decided to buy mopane driftwood for my Fluval 2.

"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.

"Google it."

I have a newly established tank for my Green Spotted puffers. The molding, texture, and general look is really good with this particular product. The water makes the wood a beautiful brown color. Each peice is unique, which makes it fun in my eyes. If I had gotten small pieces I would have boiled them. I'm not sure what people are expecting for this price. Overall, the purchase is definitely worth it.

"I'm just being picky."

I love them and they were packaged well. I've now ordered 2 large and 2 medium. I received some nice pieces for sure. It even had small branches correctly located to do my mount! My shrimp liked to crawl around and eat off this. Should have soaked it longer but oh well hopefully it will clear up soon. I received some nice pieces for sure.

"5gal tank!"

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."

It's a great set for creating a focal point in a 15 gallon or under tank. If you have a small tank this is a problem. Two pieces each individually taped up and no breakage. You MUST ACCEPT that BEFORE you order any driftwood anywhere online. Great for a small tank as a centerpiece or to fill out a big tank. Arrived today and I'm very pleased with quality for the price. You can just scrape or brush it off and suck it up with a water change.

It even had small branches correctly located to do my mount! The first is you won't know what you have until it comes. The one I received looked better than the online photo. I have another 5 Gallon Marine and Portrait to setup. 3 pieces of Cholla cactus wood, Boiled and put in Aquarium, all is good. When I stand back and look at it, it looks really great.

"RIP Spoon, RIP!"

EDIT, boiled the wood for 2 hours and they sank. It provides a decent, natural-looking refuge for smaller fish and other creatures. I recieved a Fluval Mopani Driftwood. However, this particular product is exceptional. I couldn't be happier with my purchase. All natural product what looks great. Don't scrub too hard or you'll take off the color on the piece.

The mopane wood is two-toned, with a very light tone and a black tone. Item was replaced in a very timely manner. However, this particular product is exceptional. It has live plants, and last week I finally added the fish. The pieces can be trimmed if needed and positioned as you need for placement. It comes in black, which gives drama to the hardscape. If I had gotten small pieces I would have boiled them.

"High quality wood."

Great customer service as I had a few branches missing. The quality is really good and it looked really pretty sitting in my empty tank. They have great color and character. The fish love it and it's a great addition to the aquarium. I am glad it is in my tank and adds something natural that the fish should enjoy. EDIT, boiled the wood for 2 hours and they sank. They've made great hiding spots for my catfish.

The branches do not bend, but the joints can be rotated to get different positions. I love the knarlyness of this wood. All pieces were nice size for my 5 gallon tank. If you have a small tank this is a problem. I love the knarlyness of this wood. The clean water pic is after 7 days and 3 full water changes. Would buy again if I ever get a larger tank.
