I'd love to see what you get when it comes in. I've thought of ordering from one of those places, but I've been afraid the branches would be too thin. It'll be good to find out one way or the other.

overall pretty impressed, branches are a little thin, but arent bad at all, i was planning on putting these in my 55g but i think i will use one in each of my 20g L they are quite large and im very impressed on the price..... cost me 25$ shipped for two and it got here within two days.... ( i live in utah, shipped from cali i believe) just make sure to select the shipping quote method where they email you a quote instead of selecting the only other option which is more expensive

I really like those branches! I'd probably thin out some of the smaller branches, but that's just my own taste. It's nice to have more branches than you might want so you could selectively thin a few out.

Thanks for posting the pics. I may give them a try, especially for my smaller tanks!

They look great! Do they sink, or are you going to anchor them to something?

Has anybody ordered the 3 pc Supplements from bloomandbranches? I can't decide whether those or two orders of smaller branches would give fuller driftwood

That's normal it goes away after a while.
