One of the most common problems in the planted tank and aquascaping hobby is driftwood floating upon filling an aquarium. Then couple that problem with one of the most popular driftwoods in the hobby that is notorious for floating - Spider Wood. Now we have a major problem. However, that problem has been solved by pre-attaching the base of these unique pieces of Spider Wood to natural slate stone. Both are aquarium safe and are ready to place into an aquarium. The slate stone is dense enough to sink the wood yet thin enough to be covered by planted aquarium substrate such as Ultum Nature Systems Controsoil or natural sand. Another idea is to let the slate stone show and add in additional slate stones to create a fuller aquascape.
