How long will it take to soaking to stop tannims form changing my water color
Answer by JuiceBoxerSep 10, 2023
1 to 2 weeks

One reviewer said this need to be detoxified before adding to tank; how is that done?
Answer by ChewyMar 05, 2021
If you can, boil your driftwood for at least an hour and let it cool. If your driftwood is too large to boil, submerge it in a bucket with a 5% Bleach solution for 10 to 15 minutes. Rinse very well and let it soak in bleach-free water for at least a day to be sure that any remnants of the bleach have dissipated.

I bought this product and it did not sink and do I have to do anything to it before I put it in the tank if I don't want to
Answer by ChewyFeb 20, 2022
The Driftwood normally takes around 1 to 2 weeks to absorb enough water to weigh itself down. You can use other decor or bury the wood in the substrate to help hold it down for the meantime. It is recommend rinsing off and cleaning the wood before putting it in the tank so that any dust or foreign material is removed. We also recommend soaking it to remove natural tannins in the wood. The tannins do not harm anything but they will dye the water a tea color.

Does this driftwood already sink or does it need boiled to sink
Answer by ChewyJan 26, 2021
This Driftwood is suitable for freshwater and saltwater tanks and is sinkable for use underwater in aquariums.

Not as described

I ordered 2 medium and 2 medium/large. The size description for the medium is 13 x 8 x 8inches and for the medium/large 16 x 12 x 12inches. As you can see from the picture that there is no obvious difference in the sizes. The longest one is 13.5 inches. They are completely flat (not even an inch thick) and the widest one is barely 4 inches across. Unless you want a useless slab of light, flimsy wood, I would suggest going with something like mopani which is beautiful and economical. Or go to your local aquarium store and look at driftwood. You'll pay a lot more, but, as the saying goes, you get what you pay for.

Not as described.

Same issue as many reviewers. Ordered a medium piece of driftwood and it is no where close to the described dimensions. Was hoping it would add some character to my tank, but it’s just a plank.

Received 2 medium pieces of driftwood as ordered. Both pieces were flat, meaning like a piece of bark. No branching or extensions of any kind. Absolutely NOTHING like any of the pictures. While I understand that it is a natural product and each piece is different, the pieces that I received would be better suited as coasters for a glass of water. Truly a very disappointing product.

Came broken

Ordered this for my first Chewy order along with a bag of substrate for a live planted aquarium. First delivery, the package was damaged and I had to be sent a replacement. Things happen, I understand. However, my replacement order showed the driftwood had snapped into two pieces and the bag of substrate had come open and was rolling around loosely in the box. First order with Chewy will likely be my last order.

Straight sticks.

Was hoping for something with some "character." I was sent two slabs of flat wood. Would NOT recommend.

Flat stick

I ordered a different product that turned up out of stock after it was approved so I ordered this instead. I was hoping for something with some sort of shape, not a flat piece of wood. What a disappointment.

Nothing like the picture

I purchased this thinking I would receive something that had so sort of resemblance to the picture, but WOW was I wrong. It is literally a flat piece if wood. Nothing branching up or off to the side. It looks like an overcooked slab of cheap beef.

Absolutely beautiful - pics don't do it justice!

I was a bit apprehensive purchasing an item like this online primarily because natural wood is so individually unique and being that I have a tall tank not a long tank I figured it'd be pretty hit or miss. It's perfect! Exactly the size that was stipulated online. I purchased the medium, about 13 inches in height and about 6 inches wide. The shape is beautiful there's lots of divots and crevices for shrimp to hide in. I can't wait for the tank to come in today, I hope it fits!

Much smaller than advertised

I bought the driftwood as a hiding place for a crayfish, but instead of the 13x8x8 branched wood depicted, mine is essentially a flat piece of bark, 13x5x2, and won't work for my needs. I get that every piece of wood will be different, but this is borderline fraud and it appears I was one of the lucky ones.

smaller then listed

This product was supposed to be 10 inches long and 6 inches tall. It is about 7 inches long and 4 inches tall.
