Driftwood is an essential component for decorating a naturalistic aquarium. Malaysian Driftwood is an excellent choice for aquascaping. In addition to providing dramatic, natural scenery in the aquarium, driftwood plays in an important role in the wellbeing of any aquarium. It provides shelter for aquarium animals and it can serve as an anchor for plants such as Java Fern, Anubias, and Java Moss or other mosses. Each Malaysian Driftwood piece is unique and will make an attractive addition to any freshwater aquarium! All of our aquarium driftwoods and rocks are treated for aquarium use after simple rinsing. Some driftwoods can initially release tannins in the water. Tannins are not necessarily harmful to aquarium plants and animals, but they will lower the pH of aquarium water. To reduce the release of tannins, simply boil the driftwood for a few minutes (or longer for larger pieces). If desired, driftwood can be boiled repeatedly until the boiling water does not tan at all in order to completely remove tannins before aquarium use. Otherwise, this driftwood will stop releasing tannins over time with regular aquarium water changes and maintenance. Malaysian Driftwood is very dense and heavy, so it typically sinks immediately or, at the very worst, within a couple of days.

Our shabby summer garden. It has had many revisions over the years.
Just about everything you see here was salvaged from the alleys in our neighborhood or given to us by other residents. Even the bricks and slates! One guy gave us so many slates that it took us three trips in the old Volvo wagon to get them back to our house. We put them right where the grass wouldn’t grow because of all the shade from the dogwood and mulberry trees.
In this photo, the day lilies have finished blooming and their dead stalks and leaves are all that remain.
