One of the most popular woods for planted aquariums. One of the benefits of this wood is that it sinks once all the water has been absorbed. Please soak Malaysian Driftwood for 1-2 weeks before placing into your aquarium. This will reduce the amount of water discoloration from the leaching of harmless tannic acids in the wood. As with all driftwood, each piece is unique and will vary in size, color and texture.
