=P~ =P~ =P~ =P~

Here is my latest cache of scaping material ...a WHOLE BUNCH of wood. For those who do not recognize it, it is old and well aged manzanita. It is quite dense, but does float. I have use it in the past, and over time it does sink on its own. Even so, it isn't too hard to hold down with some rockwork given its density.

I'll be storing these underwater in a big rubermaid bin until I am ready to use them :)

I may be wrong here, but isn't that what I'm used to seeing in parrot/bird cages?

yup :) It is often used with bird perches and jewlery displays (manzinita trees).
Manzanita wood, ah, thanks, you can keep #2 then.

It looks as if the wood is relatively new, but sandblasted to remove the outer bark/skin and make it look a little older. "Stressed wood." I wonder if it is going to "leak" anything into the aquarium water eventually. What do you think?

Sean meant (very indirectly LOL) that I confirmed the source he found on his own and would get some him self (possibly). I think I was a bit vague and might have miss lead some as if I was selling those various lots LOL.


the problem with "red" is that it means that the wood is a wee bit "green" for our needs. As manzanita ages, the red bark dries, curls and gets much less red.

..and that also means lots of floaties.

Yes, I was joking. I never figured that they were for sale, I just thought it was unkind to troll like that. ( [-X Bad Gomer :axe: )
I'll try to use more winks and smiles in the future. [smilie=r:

I'm starting to think we should start calling it 'scapewood' since it isn't supposed to drift when we use it. ;-)
