Mopani Wood Terrarium or Aquarium Habitat Decor

Product Overview

A beautiful two color African hardwood for aquariums or terrariums.
  • Smooth surface, textured detail, and unique mottled color adds interest and enrichment to habitats.
  • Use with plants to create the "naturalistic" look.
  • One of the hardest and densest woods available; sinks immediately in aquariums and unlike driftwood, will not rot!
  • Mopani Wood has been sandblasted clean and is ready to be added to your terrarium.
  • For use in aquariums, remember all natural wood leaches tannins, which discolor water and reduce pH levels. To minimize this effect, soak wood in a separate container, and change water daily to remove excess tannins. The wood will be ready when the water color goes from dark brown to a very light.
  • Adding extra carbon to your aquarium filter can help remove any remaining discoloration.
