owens81jw, I understand your difficulty. I first went to www.manzinita.com and got something completely different. The url here is http://manzanita.com . . . note the "zan", not "zin". Its a spelling lesson.

What size tank did you put them in?
Too far for me. At that time, gas here was $4.65 a gallon. 200 miles round trip at 20 mpg? Couldn't have possibly stuck that much wood in my tiny car either. But don't worry, I plan on going sometime soon.

I put the wood in a few 40g tanks and a friend's 120g.

If only they had this wood or old black wood up in Minnesota, I would be all over it every weekend making a profit. the LFS up here took the 8 extra pieces I had for 100 dollars/store credit. Wasnt sure if he was drunk, high, or thought it was expensive wood. O.o

There is no wood like this here in NYC and in surroundings areas. We don't even have a good stones to use in an aquarium If I could pick my own manzanita wood I would surely go

I ordered from them this afternoon. I got a medium sized stump and some spare branches for my 20 gallon. I called my order in at their suggestion after sending a few pictures of my concept via email. They were very happy to discuss it with me and find me a suitable package based on my tanks exact dimensions. I'll keep my fingers crossed until delivery, but they seemed very friendly and excited about their products. Even so far as to say they want pictures sent to them of the completed scape down the road

So far, A+ service
