Questions & Answers

5 Customer Questions

I cancel my order because read that the Cholla Wood In Aquarium only last between 7 to 14 months? Is that true? Is there any woods that you see last at least 5 years? Thanks
Answer by ChewyOct 07, 2020
Cholla wood is used more for its biofilm for Shrimps and beneficial tannin release, than its longevity. If you are looking for long lasting aquarium driftwood, you can try boiled Manzanita driftwood. This can last even a decade in aquariums, if used well. Please do your due diligence to make sure this is suitable for your needs.

Would this work for my ball python?
Answer by ChewyJun 14, 2021
This is safe as décor for ball pythons.

Can this wood be used for spiders as well?because I have a Goliath bird eating tarantula and she needs something to climb on.
Answer by ChewyJan 14, 2021
This driftwood is suitable for spiders.

how many would you get?
Answer by ChewyOct 21, 2019
This wood is sold as a pack of 3. Each piece measures approximately 5 inches long by 1 inch in diameter.

For leopard geckos

I don’t know why I was expecting these to be much bigger but they are perfect for extra decor and my leopard geckos like climbing on them.

Amazing natural decor for aquarium!

I bought these for my aquarium! I rinsed them since they were a little dusty and then I boiled them for a couple of minutes for them to sink easier. The water turns dark when you boil the cholla woods - I used this as a tannin booster for my tropical fish and as a ph softener. Overall I am pleased with these pieces of cholla wood!

Hermie Likes Them

I’ll admit that I was skeptical at first since they’re just pieces of wood. But my hermit crabs like them, and that’s what counts. They love to climb and play on these.

Just what I wanted

I needed driftwood to decorate my leopard geckos aquarium just to give it a more natural look plus give them things to climb and these are perfect. Only warning I'd give is if you have a reptile and feed them mealworms and they escape their food dish they will hide in the logs holes which will not be fun for squirmish owners.

I bought a pack for my leo to climb on and he loves it. I would suggest that you gecko lovers buy some for your geckos.

Hermit crabs love these!

I love these. They are just like the colorful plastic climbing branches they sell but these are made of wood, AND you get 3 of them for around the same price as one of those. They haven’t got any mold on them yet, but I’m sure they will since most wood items I put in there do because of the humidity levels. But I definitely would recommend these!

Great for Hermit Crabs

Our hermit crabs love climbing on the driftwood. We had a plastic one which seemed odd, so I bought this and they prefer natural wood. I do not blame them!

they’re smaller than I thought

They’re smaller than I expected, and they’re more for hamsters than my bearded dragon. That’s okay, they’re still cute and I can still add them into the decor.

Will do the job

These were smaller than I pictured, but they will do for my craft project.
