New Driftwood

I picked this Mopani driftwood up last week. Boiled it for over 8 hours and let it soak for a few days. It sank right away and hardly leeched any tannins after boiling. I attached some Java Moss to it, it has taken hold of the wood just in the past three days.

Out of water:

In the tank:

More pictures are in my album:

I absolutely love this piece!

funky, I like it! The only LFS near me that has this stuff only has it in enormous pieces that cost a bundle. Nice pickup.

This was originally $10 but was on sale for $4.99, I could not pass it up. All the other stores sell like 5" pieces for $15+, sounds like the LFS you are talking about.

That's a very striking piece of DW. Very chic!

I can't believe I just thought of a peice of DW as "chic"
