This pH-lowering driftwood is both practical and aesthetically pleasing, making it an excellent choice for any aquarium.
Cholla Wood is a fantastic and natural way to lower and buffer pH. This is the only kind of driftwood used by Aquatic Arts for all of our low-pH tanks, including some of our dwarf shrimp tanks. We use cholla wood in many of our low-pH tanks, as they produce ideal water conditions for acidic-loving animals. The pieces of driftwood add a natural beauty to any aquarium in which they are placed, and dwarf shrimp particularly love to graze for biofilm on the surfaces of the wood. They are great for planting plant buds and anchoring moss.
These pieces are 5 inches or more in length. The wood has already been cleaned and cured, and is ready for aquarium use with no preparation. However, if you want to avoid excess tannins in the water, you can also boil it before use. The wood pieces may take up to one to two days to sink to the bottom of your tank.
From time to time we have random sizes and shapes of cholla wood that we hope the Oddball variant provides your tank with all the benefits of cholla wood at a lower price. It is by no means "B-Grade" but may not be the most aesthetically pleasing pieces.
