Different Driftwood In Tank?


Does anyone mix and match different types of wood in their aquascapes? I recently discovered manzanita and would like to maybe add a piece to my tank but already have other types of wood.

Thanks!

I have found (purely through observation, as i always do a single larger peice) that you can get away with one or two types but over that seems to look slightly unnatural. I have really never seen amano or knott use more than one spices.

but if you are not going for nature aquarium look, then I imagine anything goes.

I have branchy wood and i got away with it. I broke off chunks and put it in other places to help it blend in. One of mine is very light brown and the other is super dark
