This is a terrific wood for aquascaping!
Just like the more "traditional", reddish Spider Wood, so-called "Blonde" Spider Wood is lightweight, durable, dense, and full of character. "Gnarly", in this case, is truly a "legit" description. These are small pieces, averaging around 8" to 10" (20.32 to 25.4cm) in length/width, with a variety of unique shapes. We'll pick you specimens that we know you'll love! Combine a few of 'em to create really cool hardscapes for larger aquariums!
Spider Wood is really light weight stuff. In order to prepare it for use in your aquarium, you should keep the wood weighted down in a container of fresh water to waterlog it and leach out some of the initial tannins before adding to your aquarium.
Again, these are NOT "WYSIWYG" specimens; however, we promise to only send you pieces we'd want in OUR tanks!
Because you asked...We occasionally have what we call "Patina" Nano Spider Wood pieces available. These are the same size/shape as the "Blonde" specimens, but have been "soaked" for an extended period of time and are a darker brown color. They will be shipped dry; however, they typically sink a little faster than the Blonde ones, which have not been "pre-soaked."
DIMENSIONS MENTIONED ARE APPROXIMATE. PRICE IS PER PIECE.
NOTE: These are hand selected by us, and are not WYSIWYG specimens. You will receive specimens which are similar in appearance to those shown in the photos. The photos are representative of the specimens you may expect to receive.
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...
