Default Driftwood Sources?

I know this has been posted atleast a million times, I seem to have a hard time finding the post though.
Newho,
Can you guys post links to drift wood websites?
I've posted pics and links to pics of what I'm lookin for in driftwood.
Mabey you could post suggest for types?
I just want something that takes up a large portion of the left side of my 58 gal (36.5x18.5x20) and is really branchy with a good base.

Moo you can find driftwood the pricier driftwood from our sponsor ADG,

Or you can refer to floridadriftwood.com for some pieces

or you can refer to manzanita.com.

I only have experience using the last one, which happens to be the exact same wood in the tank you linked above. See My Experience here.

I ordered a aquarium package from Manzanita.com and i'm very thrilled with the pieces I got! They are amazing! ... the downside is you have to soak them for them to sink. It took me about a 1-2 weeks for my driftwood to sink. I recommend Manzanita for those branchy type pieces and ADA Black Wood if you want something thicker and darker.

I just recently bought a box of ADA old Blackwood from Aqua Forest in San Francisco. I called George Lo, one of 2 brothers that owns the store, I think? Anyway, these guys could not have been more gracious and willing to help on the phone and by sending photos of what they had in stock via email. I have bought from Jeff at ADG before and they are fantastic to work with. I don't know if they have the old blackwood in stock or not. They were out for a while. Anyway, if you call these guys up, they will hook you up with the ADA wood. Darrell

Yup , Ive ordered ADA black wood from both ADG and Aquaforest, they both provided excellent service with pics of thier wood selectionand prompt delivery esp. here in Hawaii. I think ADG is out of the wood. I guess for now youd have to check out Aquaforest for old blackwood.

Cooper, if you know exactly what you want then let me know - I'm actually driving down to the manzanita.com location this Saturday to pick out some wood for my tank. If you have something specific in mind let me know and I'll try to pick it up.
