Also, what sizes are you guys ordering? And sandblasted vs natural red (or is it just preference)?

You want to go sandblasted...the red still has bark on it. The bark will have oils, exposure to chemicals, and will rot faster than the wood underneath. I guess you could sand it yourself, but if the pieces are small you could break them.

That's what I figured, just wasn't sure. I'm thinking of getting some 24-30" and some 18-24" pieces from bloomsandbranches!

Oh wow. I'll take one 7-foot manzanita tree, please.

I'm all over this...I have an empty 40B just itching for some of that.

I'm glad people are actually using these websites, completely forgot I had started this thread.

But it appears you can not select a specific piece.


"This is a natural branch. We cannot specify exact width and height on each because each is unique."

I started a thread on fishlore about it a month ago. I stumbled on this thread just seeing if anyone else was using these sites. I thought I had a super aquarium secret Now if only aquarium wood sites would stop ripping us off :banghead:

I purchased one from saveoncrafts.com, it's very nice. I don't know if it will sink though, haven't filled the tank. Even if you don't get to choose you can still buy 2 or 3 for the price of 1 from somewhere else. Pics are in my journal "10 Gallon CRS Minimalist". And shipping wasn't too slow, it took about 5 business days.

Just purchased a big branch! Awesome links guys. You can get one shipped for less than the branch itself from other driftwood suppliers!
