Just a reminder-- we will have driftwood for sale- direct from ADA + 2 other very nice/sculptural varieties VERY SOON. I am working feverishly to get the new shopping cart site up, and the ADA shipment is due in a few days. www.aquariumdesigngroup.com
Like I have said before, I will do the very best I can on price (i.e. no gouging!) on the ADA wood. The other is stuff is just flat out expensive- my cost (wholesale) is outrageous already, but whatayagonnado? Good driftwood has always been fairly pricey, and we depend on it for our livelyhoods here at ADG, so I buy it by the pallet anyway. I just want to share the wealth a bit to those willing buyers.
I do find that a good piece of quality, aquarium friendly driftwood lasts a very long time, so once you've got it, you've got it for a while. Maybe that's a rationale to ease the pain of the upfront cost a bit.
