Hi, When I purchased this I was afraid I would get a piece of driftwood that I didn't like. After reading a couple reviews I decided to just purchase one since I couldn't find any around my area, they were either fake or overpriced.When it arrived boy was I happy, I was hoping for a sort of L shaped driftwood that would provide shelter for my fish and I got exactly what I wanted. I was quite surprised at how lucky I was. I purchased the small one and it measured out to be about 11 inches and looks beautiful in my 10 Gallon tank. The driftwood itself is very beautiful and has a brown/tan color to it.It is real driftwood so you have to boil/soak it before you put it in the tank or else it will tint your water brown. I soaked mines in hot water for 1 full week and it leached quite a bit of tannin. Even when I put it in my tank it leached a little and tinted my water but it wasn't as bad. The tannins actually lowered my pH which is good for my fish and the slightly brown tint looked great in my tank.I posted a picture of my 10 Gallon tank so you guys can see the driftwood. Hopefully that can help you guys decide if you should take the risk or not. Please let me know if my review helped thanks.

The driftwood looks so good in my tank I want another piece! The shape was not what I expected. It's a bit like a stump with a long thin piece sticking out. I don't mind, it just isn't want I thought of. Anyway, it's in the tank. I boiled it once for about 15 mins. After 24 hours in tank there is no discoloration to the water. I like the way it looks. If it helps, I uploaded a picture that should be available with the product image. I want another piece but I want one that is more of a tunnel for my Pleco to hide in.

I thought this product was going to be too small for my tank. However this piece was perfect, after soaking it for a day, my water was crystal clear and it added a nice center piece to my 20 gallon aquarium.

Beautiful driftwood, mine has three branches that not only look great, but the fish love swimming between them, resting on the main piece, and there's even enough of a groove on the underside for them to rest under or swim through.

I purchased this piece of driftwood to add to my aquarium to help because i have really hard water. I love the look of the piece. The piece arrived well within the approximate delivery date.

I read up on driftwood before ordering one myself. I have a cycled 30 gallon hex aquarium with more that a dozen schooling tetras and a colony of about 20 cherry shrimp. I wanted to upgrade with driftwood; to make the tank look more natural and have a hidding place for baby shrimp. I cured it in a bucket of warm water for 4 days, it leached out quite a bite of tannins. The first day, the water turned dark brown, then the second less, and so forth. I srubbed it and rinced after the fourth day, attatched moss and java ferns and in the tank it went. The piece is random, whatever they send you, I got a nice curved piece with holes in it. I like it a lot and it looks great in my aquarium. The day after in the tank shrimp were already coming out of it and grazing the surface. Also, for size it it perfect for a 10 gallon or 20 gallon hex tank.
