Tigerwood is similar in looks to Spiderwood. It is recognizable by the darker brown coloration in resemblance to mopani wood. This wood could take several days to sink if not weighted down or waterlogged before adding to the aquarium. 

*You will be receiving a select piece of Tigerwood that will be approximately 6-8 inches for the small size or 8-11 inches for the large size.

Key Features:

  • Essential for Shrimp Breeding 
  • Creates Surface Area for Bio-film and Bacterial to Grow
  • Releases Beneficial Tannin into the Water which Simulates the Natural Habitat of Shrimp
  • Provides Hiding Places for Shrimp
  • Natural Feeding Ground for Shrimp of all Types

More Information:

When asked, “What is the most essential part to a successful shrimp tank?” we will always respond with three key factors: leaf matter, java moss, and a piece of driftwood.

The reason we use driftwood is because it creates surface area. What we mean is this, shrimp need places to hide, graze and sit on. By adding driftwood to an aquarium, one can more than double the surface area in a tank. Another benefit we see from using driftwood is the tannins it releases. These tannins leach from the driftwood into the water column carrying a multitude of anti-fungal and antibacterial properties. Although most people prefer clear aquarium water, here at Flip Aquatics we find that the slight discoloration adds character to the tank and allows the shrimp to feel more comfortable.

Very nice.

Tigerwood arrived nicely packaged and looks great in the tank. Was larger than I thought it would be.

Tigerwood selection

I received the selected piece of tigerwood just the other day. It was exactly what I was expecting! I can’t wait to cycle my new aquarium and order some shrimp!! Thank you!

Tigerwood select your own piece.

Excellent selection and service as always. Shipping was fast, and wood was protected ( as the piece I had chosen had delicate spindles I was a little worries). I really love the color and texture of this type of wood as well.
