Driftwood.... Requests?

I am going to slowly attempt to start collecting and selling driftwood. my question is, what sizes would most people want / what type? branches, roots, limbs etc?

Pieces with several branches that could be made into a moss tree would sell like crazy.

Pieces that look like manzanita or several limbs would sell quickly. Also, some people like myself would go for a bit larger pieces about 24 inches IMO.

Good luck!

Let me know once you have your driftwood ready to ship and possibly get some pictures up since I'm interested.

Something nice for all sizes of tanks from the 2.5 gallons to the 100+ gallons.
