Default WTB: Local driftwood

As some of you already know I had a pretty serious bacterial infection in my main tank (yes, the one we scaped) that I have fought over the past few weeks. During the treatment I had to remove everything from the tank other than the fish and the substrate. In doing so I decided that I really didn't care for the driftwood I had and would like to replace it with something better suited to the tank.

I thought about ordering from manzanita.com but as they haven't responded to my email nor my offer to come and pick out my own peices I thought I'd see if anybody local has something they'd like to sell or has see LFS peices that would be suitable for my big tank. I'd really like to be able to see something up close before commiting to it.

For those who haven't seen it or don't recall my tank is a very tall 80G measuring 36" wide x 31" tall x 15" deep.

Who's got something for me?


BTW, most of my plants were nuked... I'm on the lookout for some greenery too - donations happily accepted.

If you happen to be up in the mid OC area, Prehistoric Pets in Huntington Beach had a pretty impressive mound of wood, although, if I recall correctly, it was grapevine (it's a reptile store), so you might have some sinking issues with that, but they had (last time I was there, sometimes they have tons, some times it's sparce) HUGE variety of pieces, from very large to very small. I wouldn't drive all the way up from where you are, but if you are in the area, you might check it out.

I was in Tongs in Whittier a week or so ago and they had boxes of driftwood and some decent size pieces. You might try them, maybe call them first cause its a drive for you.

I think it was the aquarium store in Long Beach that had some 'stump' pieces. I cant remember the name, Just Fish or something to that effect.

I needed some driftwood for my tank then and found some cool pieces at Tongs.

Grapevine will get moldy looking after a little while. I used to collect my own and run it in a tub with a magnum for a week or two. Some say its risky but where does the aquarium driftwood come from? It comes fromsomewhere. I never had a problem withit in my tanks and I had it in about at least a dozen of mine.

Carl,
I know Aquatic Warehouse usually has the Malaysian driftwood and mopani in stock. Not a lot, but enough to pick through and fill a tank. Also of questionable price

Let me know what plants you can use. If I have them, they could be in the mail Friday AM.

I have some really tall vals (from the batch you gave me a few months ago), literally like 3 feet tall, that would be great in your tank, right now they are covering the surface of the corner... Let me know if you want some. I can probably throw in a single CSVal too if you want

Thanks to all of those offering plants! Give me a couple of days to figure out what I need and I'll get back to you.

As an FYI about driving distance, I actually work in the field and cover a region from Whittier in the north, to N. San Diego Co in the south, all the way over to Hemet and Temecula in the east. On top of that I actually enjoy driving and wouldn't have a problem even driving to the manzanita.com location. So what I'm really saying is that distance is kind of a non-issue for me.
