Reading through the site I saw this:

Cancellations are not allowed. We do NOT give refunds, accept returns or exchanges and we do not tolerate charge backs.

I love this part "we do not tolerate charge backs", what are they going to do? Send out Guido to break your thumbs?

How about this place http://www.floridadriftwood.com/subcat.asp?0=200
They have some nice driftwood without slate rocks stuck to the bottom.
This would give more room to aquascape with.
*edit*cost a little more ,but you would have more to pick from*

Aquarium Driftwood

I've done two orders with Aquarium Driftwood. Both time I have been happy with what I received.

I had a transaction with this place, and it was not positive. Look around the web, you'll find other unhappy customers.

Scary legal talk notwithstanding, these folks shipped my order accurately and quickly. I did have to float the driftwood in a bucket from anywhere between two and six weeks to make it sink, though. Wasn't a problem for me.

Here's some places I have bookmarked:
AquariumDriftwood.com/ Never tried them

CHICHESTER Haven't tried them either but at least you get to see the exact piece you are buying.

Atlantic Coral Enterprises I have bought from here and was very pleased.

Oops. I was thinking of driftwood I received from another place. The stuff from these guys sank like a rock.

In addition to having the largest pleco selection I have ever seen, www.exoticfinds.com has about a hundred pieces of Malaysian driftwood (best driftwood IMO, sinks fast, moss loves it), but the kicker is that they have a picture of each one. And it's not like they have high prices, they are very reasonable. About the same as my LFS, who will only periodically get in Malaysian driftwood.
