    Default Fs driftwood for large tank

    For sale is 3 pieces of driftwood (same type of wood). I would love to use this wood myself but unfortunately I don't have the means to set up a new tank. Size of the large piece is roughly 5ft.

    Somewhat resembles Manzanita but not the same as far as I can see on pics available on the interwebs.

    Yeah sorry I wouldn't have a clue what type of wood it is. These ones were bought from a friend a while ago and have been collecting dust in the shed ever since. Looking at pictures of ghost wood and they do look pretty similar, but like I said I have no clue

    No problems, the photos where inspiring, its a bit far to travel from Perth, good luck with the sale... someone buy this wood, it will make a instant spectacular aquascape

    HI mate, has the wood been wet before? Do you know if it sinks? What are the approximate dimensions for the smaller pieces and would you consider separating them? 5ft is way too big for the tanks I have. Cheers.

    Hey mate, they have been soaked before but have been out in the open for a while so would have to be re-soaked before it would sink again. piece 3 is approx 90x20x20cm and piece 2 is approx 105x20x20cm LxWxH. (rough measurements).
    $20 for both if you want
    Cheers

    Cheers. I'll have think and let you know. They may still be slightly too big to fit at 90-105cm long.
