If you're looking to simulate a large submerged mangrove "prop root", these beautiful and interesting branches are perfect! A Tannin Aquatics exclusive, these come to us from our source in Malaysia,where they are legally collected from naturally fallen trees and prepared for aquarium use.
These branches are pretty much a "one and done" solution for a small aquarium, or may be grouped with other specimens for a moderate-sized aquarium, for those wanting an interesting mangrove "rootscape." Yeah, you could literally just use one piece and get the effect of a stately, well-established mangrove root easily! Of course, if you want, you can combine several branches create even more dramatic effects! Each branch is one-of-a-kind!
These branches are beautifully intricate, with multiple "shoots" that you can use to simulate the fascinating brackish-water mangrove habitat. Just invert them and you've got an "instant root system!" They're reasonably dry, but they're quite light, which means that you'll have to get creative to anchor them down into the substrate. That means either some plant weights or some other means of securing them so they don't float upwards!
Once you overcome the flotation issue, you have an amazing natural "prop" to create your own "mangal!" Adorn them with some shells, and you'll have a very realistic habitat for your fishes to explore. These pieces may be shipped with the branches gently pulled in using tape or string for protection, and will "bounce back" to their former size/shape after you release them!
These are pieces we'd totally want in OUR tanks! In fact, it's kinda hard for us to sell them, to be quite honest. You might just say that there’s a bit of "geekiness" included with each piece of wood we offer!
DIMENSIONS ARE APPROXIMATE, AND REPRESENT A SIZE RANGE ONLY.
NOTE: You will be purchasing a piece of wood similar to the ones shown in the photos. These are not WYSIWYG specimens.

We love small, intricate details in an aquascape. Stuff like roots really create an interesting aesthetic. We love to distribute bits and pieces of assorted roots and twigs here...
Okay, we're not sure if the stuff really comes from a jungle, but it certainly looks like it'd be at home in one! This is a beautiful wood which has...
