Is this branch wood or horn wood?

I ordered a small piece of branch wood from adana-usa.com, and this is what I was sent. Looking at the pictures on their website, it seems more like horn wood to me. What do you think?

Definitely not "branch wood" - so if you don't like it or there's a cost difference, definitely reach out to customer service.

That said - it looks like a great piece of wood and could make for a killer aquascape in a small tank.

A Happy Ending!

So I contacted adana-usa.com about the horn wood that they sent me instead of branch wood, and they not only sent me this beauty, but also let me keep the horn wood free of charge!

Cool wood! That second one looks like an octopus!

My adventures in keeping Indostomus crocodilus, the crocodile toothpick fish. AKA armored stickleback, paradox fish, and freshwater pipefish. Care is (to the best of my knowledge) exactly the same as Indostomus paradoxus.
