Actually that's Marshall's (heard on this forum that they sometimes stock manzanita driftwood as wedding decor). But I might be heading to Michaels tonight to pickup some poly-fill or batting to help remove the cloudiness from the EcoComplete I just added to a new tank. Yes, the forecast is cloudy.

I did not refresh the page before I replied. If I do see DW at Michaels I'll let you know.

Make sure if you do get a peice that it is waterlogged/ has something like slate to hold it in place if not it is a pain lol. I have a big peice (very big) of dift wood that was going to be the focus of the tank but it wasnt waterlogged even after 2/3 weeks of soaking it with weight to keep it down. The holey rocks started coming in so it didnt go in the aquarium so that wood will be for another project. I have one piece I do like in the tank that I bought online.

Ok I just went to my LFS to get some fish food then leave, but they had driftwood (they usually don't) in for only $10. So I finally got a piece. It's not manzanita like I have been looking for, but it is still nice. I think it's mopani or something, I don't remember. I'm soaking it in hot water as I type this

Now that I look at it more, I think it might be Malaysian driftwood actually.
