Mopani Wood, Medium
Mopani Wood - A beautiful two color African hardwood for aquariums or terrariums. Smooth surface, textured detail, and unique mottled color adds interest and enrichment to habitats. Use with plants to create the "naturalistic" look. One of the hardest and densest woods available; sinks immediately in aquariums and unlike driftwood, will not rot! Small is 6" - 8" Medium is 10" -12" Large is 16" - 18" Jumbo is 20" - 24" Aquariums: 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 to remove any remaining discoloration. Terrariums: Mopani Wood has been sandblasted clean and is ready to be added to your terrarium.
