Questions & Answers

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.

Is it possible to see the driftwood shapes/twists etc before purchase? Or are all of them as close to the pictures?
Answer by ChewyJan 23, 2021
Due to the nature of this product, the shape will vary in each batch.

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.

Will it harm my fish if I just put the wood in my aquarium without doing anything to the wood?
Answer by ChewyFeb 20, 2022
it is recommend rinsing off and soaking the wood. During transport, and while sitting in storage, the wood may have gotten dust particles and other material on it. Cleaning it beforehand will greatly lessen the chance that there are problems when introducing it to the tank.

Awesome pieces of wood and great sizes. Always unique pieces!

I ordered four pieces for aquascaping and they came in great. I like to get varied sizes to get a great natural look! The wood sinks on its own so no noise to boil. It doesn’t release a lot of tannins and regular water changes will dilute it.

Not even close to advertised size...

I keep giving Chewy a chance for driftwood hoping this would be decent. Definitely not even close to advertised size. Not Chewy's fault I'm sure, but buyer beware. Lots of other driftwood reviews are similar to mine. Best to go to a local shop and pick out what you want instead.

I'm happy with it

I'm happy l might even order another on either the future because I'm always re arranging my 180 gallon tank. The wood is cheaper then the pet stores. Chewy Always has had my best interest in mind thank you for the past few years

Pleco loves it!

My huge pleco in a 50 gal tank did not care for plants but LOVES this. I ordered a medium and am now ordering a large. He is happy! While I soaked it prior to introducing it, it took 2 days to sink to the bottom.

Wood for aquarium

Was sent as two pieces zip tied together. One pieces was decent, relatively flat with some holes and now has anubias growing on it, the other pieces is a drab "Y" shaped chunk that came covered in dirt and seems more decayed than I'd like, similar to something you'd turn over in the woods to look for worms. I added it to the tank anyways, at least the snails and plecos can chew on it.
