Where can I get a nice piece of Mopani wood?
Does Mopani darken the water quite a bit (even after boiling it)?
Thank you.

Sir Blackhole is right, lots of LFS's carry mopani driftwood...it's probably the most common. Even if it does discolor your water you can always use Purigen, etc. to clear up your water...although I actually like the affects of driftwood on my water parameters! :wink:

Hey Barbels,
Even though I gave you links to online places at AD, it is more fun to get it from your LFS and pick the exact shape and size you want. Only trouble is it usually costs about 3 - 4 x's more at the store.
I was in shock when I made a trip out of town a couple of weeks ago and saw prices of $50 - $75 for a smallish piece of wood. :shock:

The best place I've ever found to buy it (and choose your own) is a place like a fish or plant convention. You should see my bulging suitcases sometimes.... 8)
