Bonsai Wood Store!

I found this and thought I'd share . . .

http://bonsaidriftwood.com/

It's a whole website that sells bonsai trees for aquarium usage!

Anyone bought from there before? It looks amazing!

That's pretty sick.
Thank you from sharing, although it seems more like you're advertising. . lol

Nope not advertising, just showing something I thought was cool. I've seen people looking for them often enough in the wtb/raok section.

I've often thought of getting one for my tanks but I'm not ready to pay those prices! Besides using one, I'd like to get one just to figure out how they are made. Then I'd go into mass production and make some mad money!

Nice to see these get re-purposed for aquatic use, though I'm not terribly impressed by the form of most of these; the branched areas are all too tight and small without enough branched extensions off the main trunk. Then again, it's not like masterpiece bonsai are going to end up on the brush pile all that often, and it's exactly these sort of mass produced mediocre forms that would be readily available to supply an ongoing market.

As far as I'm aware, they are not dead bonsai trees. I think they are made from roots and have been put together to form the bonsai shape.
Check out this link and read post #11 and #12.

I've heard those don't last long submerged, they eventually rot and fall apart. Anyone try these?

Whoa, I didn't think these existed? I wish I knew about this sooner, and here I am glueing and cutting driftwood like a fool.

Hey skool, what page has the driftwood?

Nice! I looked high and low for driftwood finding only pieces I had to cut, shape, glue and eventually throw away because I screwed it up! Lol. Good find! Thanks for sharing!

jeffro_d,
Post up if you buy one and let us know about your experiences. I'm curious if it's any good.
