Malaysian Driftwood is safe to use in your Aquarium, Terrarium, Vivarium or Paludarium. Fish keepers around the world love to use this drift wood to create beautiful aquascapes! It is safe to use with shrimp, plecostomus, fresh water tropical fish, and south american cichlids. We love using Malaysian Drift Wood with many of our reptiles and frogs!
Malaysian Driftwood has been sought after because of it rich colors, and durability. It is also very dense and heavy as such it will immediately sink to the bottom of an aquarium. You can easily attach live plants to the wood, to create a one of a kind environment for your pets.
Each piece weighs 1.5-2 kg and is approximately 10-12 inch (25-30cm) long and about 8-10 inch (20-25 cm wide.
Before adding driftwood to your aquarium, it is best practice to pre-soak the wood in a bucket (or other container large enough for the wood) filled with warm, dechlorinated tap water for 24 to 48 hours. You can even boil the drift wood for about 20 minutes to have the same effect.
This will help to remove some of the natural tannins from the driftwood, as well as make sure it is waterlogged so that it will sink in the aquarium. If after adding the wood to your aquarium, you find that it is turning the water yellow, you can use carbon in your filter to remove the tannins, or repeat the pre-soaking process to remove more tannin before placing it back into the aquarium.
Due to the nature of this product there will be natural variations in size, shape and color of each individual piece of drift wood.
