Driftwood

Hey Everyone,

I've been trying to get my hands on a decent piece of driftwood for my 20g high for quite some time now. I even won an auction on ebay, never received the item, and am currently waiting for the claim to process via paypal. Anyway...there are 13 minutes on this piece of driftwood on aquabid and I think it'll look great in my tank, providing yet another cave-like shelter and some places for me to attach java moss/fern and other plants. What do you guys think?

Thanks,

Mike

That looks like a really nice piece of driftwood. I especially like the shape. I would go for it.

blah...i set my max bid to 15 bucks and got outbid in the last 10 seconds...bleh. Oh well, onward and upward. Time to find a new piece to try to win

Looks like most of the pieces i'm interested in end in a few days so we'll see what I can come up with. I'd order from a place online to be sure I got it, but if I go that route then I don't know what the piece i'm getting looks like And...the LFS don't have anything decent along the lines of driftwood

Unbelievable - I had a bid in on a piece of driftwood in eBay, was going to bid on that same Aquabid piece if that one fell through. I did get mine, though - sorry yours fell through.

I did end up picking up what looks like a decent piece for my 20g tank.

I may also see if I can find another smaller cave like piece as well though.

Thats a nice piece. Mopani is good wood, sinks great, nice color under water.

Best guy to buy driftwood from on ebay is RockArtSource. Has a lot of buy now pieces also. Quick to ship and great communication. I bought a piece and had a bid in for another piece. I asked and he let me wait to see if I won the auction so he could send the 2 pieces toghether saving me a ton on shipping.
