i got the roots in my lfs here in germany. the roots are called "red moorwood" i searched hard the internet to know which tree they came from sadly no success. if you could find red moorwood in ebay/amazon/or you lfs buy them - they have so much character - you can even tie moss on the roots to give your aquarium another dimension - but im contemplating on doing that because the aesthetic beauty and character of the roots will be covered.

if you buy red moorwood - be wary that some imports from china are actually rhododendron roots - which can be fatal to fishes as it excretes poision. so look for the real red moorwood. it seems suspcious though - but try manzanita if you couldnt find red moorwood in your area (though i only sa manzanita in pictures) - the physical characteristics are the same: branchy and rooty.

if you bought red moorwood and soaked in your aquarium - it isnt like the normal driftwood that would sink - it would float in the aquarium for weeks and excrete a slimey white coating - but thats harmless and plecos love to eat it. you can use rocks to anchor the driftwood glued by aquarium silicon.

crap - that was long! lol

janky and tiger - sadly i have to remove the hanging roots for the moment - the pigeon blood is bullying the new discus and they get tangled up in the roots when they flee - they get scars and accidentally bumping their eyes on them which to my horror - damaged their eyes today (thank god it lasted for half a day and healed again but what a nightmare that was) - ill put them back when things start to settle down. but i was so stressed with the bully discus today.
