Aquatic African Mopani Wood - Driftwood - Large - 16 in. to 18 in.
African Mopani Wood makes an amazing accent for any tropical freshwater aquarium. The beautiful, two-toned surface and textured detail adds a natural touch to any aquatic environment. The extremely dense hardwood structure will sink right away and won't break down like driftwood. Each piece has a unique shape. This wood may release natural tannins, creating a yellow or slightly brown tint. The tannins should not harm fish in freshwater environments, but soaking the wood before introducing it to your tank may help to minimize the tint. Sandblasted clean and ready to use.
Specifications Material NATURAL SOUTH AFRICA MOPANI WOOD
Instructions All natural wood products leach tannins, which discolor water and reduce pH levels. To minimize this effect, soak wood in a separate container and change water daily to remove excess tannins. When the water color goes from dark brown to a very light tea color (or clear), the wood is ready for your aquarium. Adding extra carbon to your aquarium filter can help remove any remaining discoloration.
