I haven't bought any myself, but I know that Jeff of ADG has been known to spend an unusually long amount of time helping customers select individual pieces of wood. I'd suggest e-mailing him with the dimensions of your tank and what kind of general arrangement you're trying to create (branchy, caves, etc.).

I have some in my tank sizes medium and small. I have a 15 gallon tank 12" high and all three pieces fit just fine. The wood looks great, and I am very happy with it.

cmcnulty, is it possible for you to guess the approximate sizes of the two?

driftwood pics

Sizes may vary but my pieces are about 10" to 15" long, but there are many different irregular pieces. A steep price to pay for wood, but very good looking. Being pre-treated is always a bonus too.

I also emailed aquaforest asking for the size, but no answer yet. Those pieces of driftwood kind of look ugly. Do they have branchy wood? Or is it just sticks/stump looking etc?

you need ask for branchy type pieces. i have a bunch from Jeff and he is good about getting something close to what your looking for. the small pieces are maybe 10" long and mine are branchy but more like a tree stump with the roots as that is what i asked for for my nano tanks. if ADG is out there is also Aquaforest in SF.

My tank is very small, so there aren't too many exciting choices. Also the pictures are very low quality and they were taken from a tank I am taking down. Since the driftwood is so small its obvious they wont look as good as the ones in the picture will. I did get them from aquaforest, and after looking at many different pieces those were the ones I liked best. Now I would have rather gotten a"branchier" looking piece, but I liked the dark look of this wood too much. I definitely don't think they are ugly, but with the experience I have now I would choose a diiferent type. Too each their own

Also the pieces were originally placed in close proximity were they looked much better, but in an all honesty those are some pretty horrid pictures.
