Wood from the Green Machine Online has arrived!

After about 4 weeks and 2 days of waiting, my piece of Redmoor Rootwood has arrived! I'm really surprised the wood hasn't been sprayed with pesticides or even confiscated because I did not have documentation provided. Sadly enough, this piece of wood is wayy too small for my 17 gallon tank. it measures around 9 inches in length, perfect for a nano aquarium.

What about standing it up, tying some moss to the top, and making it in to a tree?

I would need more of the same type of wood or the tank would look empty.

I like it as well. The wood has some character with the bumps and knots.

I have some of this in my tank I just set up, in fact it is set up to look like a tree as Drakescree had suggested. It really does have a fantastic red colouration to it once it gets wet too!
