Good idea ... but not sure I can picture myself holding one big piece of driftwood and turning another big piece to screw it on inside a 90 gallon tank that is half full of water, fish and plants ...
Bahaha yeah you might just rake up everything...I was think that it would be unplanted :/

acitydweller vicky certainly has skills! Moreso with smaller tanks, cutting is required.

Good info! Just get the piece you want and cut it up. You can screw it back together in the tank. Some well placed screws can be hidden easily with plants, moss, rocks.... Manzi is the best wood for tank IMO. You don't want a flexible wood as it will be really soft and will fall apart in your tank.

Manzanita question

I have a 90 gallon acrylic tank. I am considering purchasing a piece of manzanita driftwood for it. This is an older acrylic tank with two (relatively) small openings on top. I assume I am restricted to buying wood pieces that will fit into one of the two openings? Is manzanita flexible? ie. can the branches be scrunched together to fit into a smaller opening? Can a big piece be sawed into smaller pieces and super glued inside the tank? Any other ideas?

Thanks!
