    I was very excited to get this product.[...] it was beautiful. I excitedly added it to one of my 55g fresh water tanks, where I quickly discovered that it refused to sink! It took about 3 days for this wood to become water-logged and stay down on its own. The slate base attached to it does not help in this process at all, you just have to wait it out. Because it is natural, real wood of a certain type, this can be expected. What I did not expect was that after being in the water for a week, as a natural object, it was quickly covered in a thick mass of white bacteria- also something that had to be waited out- after about a week of this white film showing up, it disappeared on its own (remember that as a natural wood piece, it has bacteria inside and all over it that becomes live and activated when it hits water like this). After that, it has been smooth sailing all the way. My fish love it- both the large (discus) and the very small (cardinal tetras) fish love this wood because it provides plenty of interesting twists, turns, and shelter hiding spots. I love it because it is absolutely beautiful. My tank is planted completely with live plants, and it looks like this wood was just made for it. I would absolutely get this product again, and I will actually be getting another piece for the other half of the tank it is in- but this time I will be prepared for the water-logging and bacteria explosion that can be expected with a natural piece of wood. It looks stunning!

    Hoping to get a nice piece for my 50 gallon, I bought this. I called ahead and asked specifically for a taller piece because my tank was not so wide (breeder style). When it arrived, it was only 7 inches high, which the description says at LEAST 12", and the roots were spread out so wide that it would not fit in my tank, nor any of my other standard 55 gallons. [...] If I trimmed the roots, all that would be left is a short stump... It would be a great product if you can get the right size. [...]service.

      I was a little worried buying these since you do not get to pick out your own pieces, but I purchased three of the small sized ones and I was very pleased with the pieces picked out for me. Mine even look much better than the one in the picture.

              Comments about Aquarium Wood - Small:

              I bought the small and it just fits in my 55 gallon tank. Very good value for the price. I soaked it for a week in a 5 gallon bucket. Some of the driftwood stuck out so occasionally I flipped it upside down. I changed the water daily. However it still is leaching tannins after a month in my tank. I think it's about done now but when I did a partial water change a few days ago, the water was tea colored. However, the piece is gorgeous. Lots of twisty little roots/branches. I love it and couldn't be happier with it. It looks like some kind of ethereal tree.

              it's a chunk of wood with a stone base. couldn't be more simple. HOWEVER, the piece is purchased sight-unseen. Once it arrives, you have a find a way to make it work with your scape.

I opened the mailing box and it was so nice, perfect size for my tank and it looks wonderful, really adds a nice touch to my planted tank. My fish LOVE it!!

                Immediately added interest and attention to my tank. This is a great centerpiece and the gnarled and twisted roots look great and natural. It was bigger than what i expected but its perfect for my 55 gallon. Glad i didn't get large though.

                  But, I'm glad I did, it looks great! Nice, branchy, and just the right size!

                    This is great wood for the quarium. The only problem is that you can't pick out an actual piece so the pieces you get can be unsuitable for your aquarium. I had to cut mine to fit. Other than that looks great, very natural effect.

                        A:

                        It is best to have in a bucket/container large enough to be submersed fully for atleast 48 hours. Drain the water and repeat as necessary. The point of submerging and allow soaking, is to allow the wood to release the tannins, which will discolor water.

                        This is a type of driftwood that is safe for aquariums. It will release tannins that will discolor the water but carbon in your filter will remove discoloration. This wood is meant for freshwater use only.

                        This is very common in new pieces of wood. Over time it will go away on its own. You can manually remove these pieces during your water changes.It will not harm your fish.

                        The medium might work best if you are using it as a center piece. The size in a medium ranges from 10" - 18". I feel that the small maybe to small but would be perfect if you are adding to your existing aquascape.
