A relatively new aquarium hardscape wood, Black Forest Spider Wood is characterized by its signature dark, charcoal brown hue. This unique feature sets it apart from other aquascaping driftwoods such as normal Spider Wood which is lighter in color and only becomes brown in color once waterlogged. Black Forest Spider Wood, however, will become darker and darker as time passes. As a result, this bold aquarium wood provides a much darker-toned and mysterious planted aquarium atmosphere along with beautiful contrast against boldly colored aquatic plants. In addition, this Spider Wood releases a minimal amount of tannins that would otherwise tint aquarium water for a longer period of time.
Wild twists and turns along with knots define this aquarium wood. Its natural root-like look is commonly sought after by enthusiasts. Black Forest Spider Wood works well on its own as a centerpiece or when complemented with smaller stones at the base of any scape.
Measurements: 7" - 15" long
TIP 1: Usually sinks on its own in 2 weeks time
TIP 2: Tannins leeched from wood will provide a natural tint to water, but will gradually dissipate based on the frequency of water changes
