Online driftwood vendors?

It seems using Google should be easy enough, but it's really hit and miss.

I'm interested in hearing about some good places to buy aquarium driftwood online.

Floridadriftwood.com is one, but their selection is a bit on the limited side (and the fact that I found out they sold me a $99 Blueline CO2 regulator for $199 has left a bad taste in my mouth).

It's not a bad idea I think to have a selection of vendors/sites to look at, so let's hear 'em!

That is the best price I've seen. Mind you I haven't bought that from them so I don't know what the quality or customer service is like.

Here's another link http://www.drsfostersmith.com/produc...&N=2004+113714
To be honest, I never ordered driftwood from them, but I do like their service.

I got a killer piece of driftwood from Aquariumdriftwood.com. And the best part was that I asked for a particular shape, and got it!

Though admittedly it would be better if you could pick a piece. But for a "sight unseen" purchase experience, it was great.

I second Dr Smith and Foster. I've bought 3 pieces from them (along with other stuff) and had all positive experiences. Can't go wrong with them.

But dont rule out going out and getting your own either, it will give you another story to tell when people ask about your tank

eBay is the best place to get driftwood, it's one of the few places you can see the piece your buying from trust worthy sellers and the prices pretty much beat anything around.

I've seen one too many companies post a "representative" photo and then ship a piece that doesn't even come close and the prices are stupid. Of course if you collect it yourself, do so, the prices are even better.

Ok, collecting your own driftwood brings up question. How do you cure, clean etc. Your driftwood? I recall having do it in the past but the past was a long time ago

The aquariumdriftwood.com site is a pretty simplistic one, but I have heard only positive things about the service from them, & thye have really good prices.

I'll third Drs Foster & Smith. I bought 3 pieces also. Their Malaysian driftwood really is self-sinking.. very dark (lots of tannins) tho..
