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 the twists and character you want, with a beautiful color contrast. With it's deep reddish-brown color and contrasting lighter sections, it's almost "Mopani-like" to some extent, but undeniably lighter and more branchy.
Like most aquatic wood, it will tend to float for a while before it becomes waterlogged enough to sink. You can, of course, hasten the process a bit by weighing your specimen down with a rock or two. And of course, like most other wood types, it will recruit some fungal and biofilm growth initially after submersion. Significant tannins are released during the "curing" process, and beyond which we, of course, love, but you "clear water" types may not appreciate, so curing in a separate container might be a good option for you!
This shapes and sizes in our selection are quite variable, ranging in length from 12"-16" (30.48-40.64cm), with a few running larger (ask us if we have any!). Some are more "branchy" in structure, while a few are definitely more "chunky", with radiating branches A perfect representation of the wood you'll find on the bottom of shallow jungle streams, hence the name!
Again, these are NOT "WYSIWYG" specimens; however, we promise to only send you pieces we'd want in OUR tanks!
