Here is one of the most exciting varieties of wood we've come across in some time! "Satu" Wood comes from Vietnam. It has a beautiful reddish-brown color and intricate, deep texture with lots of gnarly little grooves and wispy extensions. It sort of reminds us of a beefier-looking, more rough-surfaced form of "Spider Wood", but with a unique character which really sets it apart!
It's reasonably dense wood that should sink with minimal effort and soaking on your part. It's strong enough, aesthetic-wise, to be a stand-alone anchor in a nice hardscape, or be a "bit player" in a planted or botanical-infused aquascape. And it's many branches and gnarly knots offer great attachment points for epiphytic plants, like Bucephalandra or Anubias, or mosses!
Each piece was carefully selected for aquascaping work, with multiple thin branches and twisted shapes that work beautifully in the aquarium! It's a versatile, attractive wood that's sure to become a favorite!
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!
