Mopani wood has been sandblasted clean and is ready to be added to your terrarium. This beautiful nd exotic two colored African hardwood accessory adds a naturalistic look especially when combined with plants. Its smooth surface, textured detail, and unique mottled color adds interest and enrichment to habitats. As these are one of the hardest and densest woods available, they can be used in aquariums as they sink immediately and unlink driftwoods will not rot. For use in aquariums, remember all natural wood leaches tannins, which discolor water and reduce pH levels. To minimize this effect, soak wood in a separate container, and change water daily to remove excess tannins. When the water color goes from dark brown to a very light "tea" color (or clear), the wood is ready for your aquarium. Adding extra carbon to your aquarium filter can help to remove any remaining discoloration.
