Great addition to my nano aquarium
After a little online research, I decided to buy moparane driftwood for my Fluval 2.6 gallon Spec III aquarium. I have very hard water, so I have no objection to adding an element to my tank that may reduce pH in addition to the underlying aesthetic. I couldn't be happier about my purchase. I know what I bought may not look like the one in the picture, but I'm not satisfied-in fact, I'm very satisfied with the appearance of the driftwood I received. It's a hardwood that doesn't float, so you don't need to anchor it at all. Mopalin wood is a two-tone wood with a very light tone and a black tone. It looks unusual and beautiful. If you plan to buy Mopane driftwood, if you don't want to turn the water in your aquarium brown, you have to do some preparatory work because Mopalin will seep into your water. That's what I do to prevent the water from my aquarium from looking, really, like tea. First, I soaked in tap water for a few hours in my 5 quart Corningware Dutch oven. I poured out the dark brown water and replaced it with fresh tap water, and then I began to boil the driftwood. After heating the water to boiling, I turned off the burner and let the wood soak in my Dutch oven for three hours and cover it. After soaking for three hours, I poured out the dark brown water, filled the Dutch oven with fresh tap water, and then heated the water to a boil. Once the water boiled, I turned off the heat again, and then.
