Part of our mission here at Tannin is to bring you wood with character and aesthetics which gives your aquascape a certain unique look to it. We've spent a lot of time trying to source unusual, high-quality pieces from a variety of sources. So, when our trusted supplier of Manzanita offered us a chance to try this killer stuff called "Linhsam Wood", how could we say no?
This wood definitely fills the "unique" requirement! It has an amazing tank color, with rich, deep highlights. It's texture reminds us a bit of "old school" driftwood, but with a "heft" that sets it apart form other types. You'll love the gnarled, fine look it has, and the beautiful patina it takes on once it's submerged. These pieces really look like the kind of tree stumps and submerged branches that you'd find in a stream, river, or flooded forest! The options for utilizing it in all sorts of 'scapes are limitless!
Each piece was carefully selected for aquascaping work, with multiple thin branches and twisted shapes that work beautifully in the aquarium!
All pieces are What You See Is What You Get (WYSIWYG).
Before you use this wood in your aquarium, you should give it a good rinse, and soak it in water for a few days. This wood is typically dense enough that it will sink immediately. Sure, there will still be some leaching of tannins over time, but not to the same extent as some of our other woods- and you know how we feel about "the tint!"
Anyone can sell you a piece of nice driftwood, but it takes hardcore fish geeks like us to put the "aquarium geek eye" on each piece..That’s what sets Tannin driftwood apart. We think that the time and effort that went into selecting it for aquarium use is well worth it.
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 driftwood we offer!
